Eijkelkamp 08.66 Surface Shear Test Apparatus

Surface shear test apparatus
  • Eijkelkamp 08.66 Surface Shear Test Apparatus soil stability is a decisive factor for erosion risk reduction.
  • Soil stability is determined by shear resistance or the angle of internal friction, depending on or varying through soil-water pressure and humus content.
  • Soil shear resistance will increase with increasing organic carbon content.
  • Air-dry soil state samples will result in the smallest resistance to shearing in comparison with the range of water content applied.
  • The effect of bulk density on soil shear strength depends on the water content and is distinct for a higher range of vertical loads.
