A Hveem Stabilometer measures the pressure and R-value of compacted soil under compression before it is used under surfaces like paved roads.
ASTM F2077 reveals the axial-compression, compression-shear, and torsion tests needed to understand spinal intervertebral body fusion devices.
In vitro conditions need to be reproduced when testing the axial loading required to insert a bone screw into laboratory material, following ASTM F543-17.
Instead of a simple uniaxial test, a cruciform, or cross-shaped plate, with four actuators helps with testing structures for multi-axial stress.
The California Test Method 366 requires a stabilometer to measure the horizontal pressure to asphalt concrete under compression, and the 300DX Model can be used.
