Triax Solver & Database
or PFAS add-on
Triax Solver is a program for reading triaxial data and interpreting Youngs Modulus and Poissons Ratio. The program interacts with a database where all the tests along with the results and other information are being stored.
Triax Solver main window presents information about a test including a graphical presentation of the time series.
Users can save their working environment to a login username. The working environment includes working directory and selections of colors and units. There are several options for units on numeric values.
Import time series from a text file by specifying columns and units for time, deformation, and stress, as well as in which line the program will find confining pressure. The user can also copy other information from the import file.
The program presents a preview before printing and the user may choose between two different printouts; Triax Graph and Triax Information.
The graphical presentation shows the stress vs. strain graph in a coordinate system where the user can interpret Youngs Modulus, Poissons Ratio, Axial Stress at failure, and Residual Stress. The user can zoom in and out and select between graph styles and sizes.
Axial Stress at failure and Residual Stress are set either by built-in functions or by the user marking directly on the graph. Youngs Modulus and Poissons Ratio are set either by the built-in 40-60% function or by the user marking the region to calculate.
Triax Solver interacts with a database and a database interface where the data can be stored. The database offers an easy way to store data and to review data later. The interface makes it easy to search among all tests and make a list of those of interest. Selecting a test will open this test in Triax Solver. The results from the database will be accessible through a previous and a next button.
