GDS Rock Mechanics Range

To assess the deformation and failure characteristics of rock in the laboratory, test equipment must be stiff to avoid tremendous backlash and spring effects at failure, as well as sufficiently designed and manufactured to ensure consistent results year on year. The GDS instruments rock mechanics range is therefore built to meet these requirements, providing high load 2MN static, 1.5MN dynamic systems, with options to include advanced transducers, such as acoustic velocity and acoustic emissions.
