Empire United provides two mechanical instruments for measuring soil shear strength. The field inspection vane tester is employed for determining the shear strength of undrained cohesive soft soils, ranging from CU to firm non-fissured soils, directly on-site. Additionally, we offer the pocket vane tester, which allows for quick measurement of the approximate shear strength of cohesive soils, whether in the field or laboratory.
