Evaluate Rock Mechanics More Efficiently
Before any hard-to-reach fossil fuel resource can be tapped or new construction site or mine excavated, civil engineers must accurately evaluate the rock, sand or other materials that their work will require them to penetrate.
Analyzing such geomaterials can push test equipment to the extreme. Replicating extremely high loads, pressures and temperatures adds layers of challenge to the task of determining the mechanical properties of geomaterial deposits from relatively small sample specimens.
Civil engineers and researchers worldwide leverage MTS testing expertise, high-stiffness servohydraulic test systems and accessories, and unrivaled global support to perform a full range of geomaterial testing, from direct and indirect tension to ultrasonic velocity and acoustic emission analyses. Whether you support petroleum exploration, mining and construction or research, we can help you test with greater accuracy, efficiency and confidence.
