GFZ - German Research Centre for Geosciences
Lately, the core elements of the high-pressure, high-temperature 3D True Triaxial Press facility at the GFZ were set up and put into operation. The facility includes a modularly expandable, cubic, polyaxial high-pressure testing facility for carrying out stress-strain analyses on rock samples under real triaxial pressure conditions with control options in all three main stress directions.
The facility is used to carry out highly specialised, experimental pressure tests on rocks, e.g. from …
