Development of sheartester measurement software
Report 2005.TL.7018, Transport Engineering and Logistics.
The section Transport Engineering and Logistics of the Delft University of
Technology has acquired a new shear tester. This tester will be used for
some practical student courses on bulk solids and for research purposes.
The tester is equipped with a digital display and a XY-plotter to process
the measurements. After the measurements have been performed, a lot of
manual calculation is required before the final results are available. To
facilitate the students and the researchers that use the tester, a program
has been developed that performs all calculations that before needed to be
done by hand. This improves both accuracy and speed of the measurements
In this report, the functional requkements for this program are specified,
along with a description of the development and explanation of the code of
