A new generation of Universal Testing Machine combining state of the art technology with proven reliability and precision for research and standard testing. The Servo-Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine CRT-UTM-HYD is a well designed, inexpensive machine specifically developed for the testing of materials used in pavement construction. A motorized, adjustable crosshead reduces the time between test setups. The programmable temperature cabinet provides the possibility to perform frequency/temperature sweeps. Accurate waveforms are digitally generated and applied by the actuator producing repeatable conditions that are simulative of those created by moving or static vehicles. The actuator is double-acting allowing both compressive and tensile forces to be applied. Various systems are available for the measurement of the modulus of unbound materials.
