  • Field Vane Shear Tester


    Take direct readings of shear strength to depths up to 10 ft (3 meters) in soft to stiff clays.Three vane sizes allow for the direct determination of un-drained shear strength of soft to stiff clays. The peak vane value is determined by a calibrated scale ring built into the head assembly. The cross handle is used both to push the vane to the desired test depth and apply the shearing torque. To correct for the skin friction of the extension rods, a dummy probe replaces the vane and a skin friction test is performed adjacent to the vane test location.
