Tri-axial shear strength

£475 per sample

This is a laboratory based test that will measure the shear strength of a surface. Shear strength is an important material property of a surface. It is a measurement of how strong a surface is when you apply pressure to it, which is very difficult to measure accurately using field tests. Shear strength is important during landing and push off, will influence grip characteristics of a surface, and will influence how much kick back there is from the surface and/or how much it will move from repeated take offs and landings.
