A triaxial geocomposite testing apparatus for simultaneously calibrating multiple pressure transducers

 

A triaxial geocomposite testing apparatus  for simultaneously calibrating multiple pressure transducers are provided. The apparatus  includes a base  that has an inlet  an outlet and a plurality of spaced apart lateral openings  formed therein. A fluid having a pressure is filled within a fluid retaining section. At least one pressure transducer insertable within the fluid retaining section  through a corresponding opening  for providing electrical signals during testing. A pedestal is attacheable to the base  and includes at least one recess  formed on its top surface. The at least one recess has a first diameter and includes atleast one earth pressure transducer  having a second diameter positionable therein. The first diameter is greater than the second diameter. A holding member is also disposed within the at least one recess for allowing the at least one earth pressure transducer  to be tightly retained therein. Actuation surface of the at least one earth pressure transducer  leveled with a top surface of the holding member .
