The TEXAMe pre-boring pressuremeter is a rugged and reliable instrument that can be used for various ground engineering applications. This pressuremeter distinguishes itself by its ease of use and versatility. Loading is done manually with a screw jack, allowing the user to run tests in either strain or stress-controlled steps. The manually-controlled hydraulic loading system ensures good repeatability of the test, making unload-reload cycles very easy. The new electronic version of the TEXAMe pressuremeter makes general operation of the equipment easier and repeatable.
