RST-CONTROL 95 for Ring shear testers RST-01.pc and RST-XS

Updates of RST-CONTROL 95 (combined with RSV 95) for the automatic Ring Shear Testers RST-01.pc and RST-XS can be obtained via e-mail. Please send your request to:  mail@dietmar-schulze.de.

We recommend to update RST-CONTROL 95 Version 1 to RST-CONTROL 95 version 2.2 (incl. RSV 95) for Microsoft Windows 7/8/10*. Some new features of version 2.2. compared to version 1:

  • Automatic adjustment of the program window to screens with aspect ratio 16:9.
  • Adjusted to requirements of Windows 7/8/10*.
  • Automatic determination of the normal stress at preshear depending on the consolidation stress entered by the operator (yield locus tests). The normal stress is plotted on the screen during this procedure.
  • Automatic determination of the normal stresses at shear to failure (yield locus tests, time yield locus tests). The normal stress is plotted on the screen during this procedure.
  • Time wall yield locus tests (adhesion tests, i.e., the effect of storage at rest on the static wall friction).
  • The "Terminal" command was added to the "Help" menu. With this function the electronic system of the ring shear tester can be checked in case of problems with the tester.
  • Quicker adjustment of the normal load at the start of a test.
  • Attrition test (ring shear tester RST-XS only, for ring shear tester RST-01.pc this function was available already in version 1).
  • Compressibility test (ring shear tester RST-XS only, for ring shear tester RST-01.pc this function was available already in version 1).
  • DATATIME files can be viewed, exported, and printed with program RST-INSPECTOR ("Data" menu).
  • The results of yield locus tests can be displayed in the additional "PHILIN" and "flowability" diagrams. The flowability diagram shows the flowability FFC of the individual yield loci as a vertical bar.
  • Diagrams can be saved or exported as JPEG. This reduces the file size compared to BMP files.
  • The user can enter the names of the preferred folders for saving test results, diagrams, etc.
  • Diagrams can be provided with a background bitmap similar to a watermark. This allows the user to add a company logo to the diagrams.

RST-CONTROL 95 for Ring Shear Tester RST-XS.s:

Updates of RST-CONTROL 95 (combined with RSV 95) for the automatic Ring Shear Testers RST-XS.s can be obtained via e-mail. Please send your request to: mail@dietmar-schulze.de.


SV 95 (Jenike-type translational shear tester)

It is recommended to update SV 95 version 1 to SV 95 version 2.3 for Microsoft Windows 7/8/10*.

From version 2.3, SV 95 provides the opportunity to export "Flow Property Exchange Files" which can be imported in CAHD - Computer-aided hopper design.


RSV 95 (for manually operated Ring Shear Tester RST-01.01)

It is recommended to update RSV 95 version 1 to RSV 95 version 2.2 for Microsoft Windows 7/8/10*
