Publicado em 24/12/2016




The Vane Tests consists of four rectangular blades that are pushed into the ground to the desired depth. Once the depth is reached, the blades are rotated in a standard, constant speed.

The resistance of the soil increases until the soil shears, and these readings provide the undrained shear strenght. This test is standardized by ASTM-D2573 and NBR-10905 (in Brazil).





With the vane readings it is possible to obtain:

    • The torque x rotation graphico
    • Undrained shear strenght (Su)
    • Remolded shear strenght
    • Soil sensitivity
