ROCKTEST-Rock uniaxial and triaxial compression tester


Uniaxial and triaxial compression tests are essential for carbon storage reservoirs because they evaluate rock mechanical strength and predict rock behavior under pressure, ensuring storage site stability. The tests ensure the effectiveness of the cap rock as a seal, minimizing CO2 leakage risks. The ROCKTEST, a servo-controlled system, offers a modern yet classic approach to rock compression testing. It's tailored for both uniaxial and triaxial compression tests on samples. Through these tests, users can determine various rock properties such as strength, elastic attributes, shear strength at different confining pressures, shearing resistance angle, cohesion, modulus of elasticity, Poisson’s ratio, and tensile strength. The system's flexible setup includes options like uniaxial compression platens, sensors for axial and circumferential deformations, a triaxial cell, acoustic speed measurements, permeability testing, and fixtures for indirect tension Brazilian tests.
