Abstract

The development of the ring shear device was upgraded since 2010, particularly for the loading system. Previous version of the ring shear apparatus of DPRI series has a long loading frame consists of pillars and beam for the normal stress system. Recently, loading piston through the single central axis was applied for the normal stress in the newest version of ring shear apparatus. There are two version of this new apparatus, called the ICL-1 and the ICL-2. The ICL-1 version was developed since 2010 as a part of SATREPS project for ‘Risk identification and land-use planning for disaster mitigation of landslides and floods in Croatia.’ Meanwhile, the development of the ICL-2 was carried out since 2012 as a part of SATREPS project between Japan and Vietnam for ‘Development of landslide risk assessment technology along transportation arteries in Vietnam’. As for practical purpose, both version of the undrained dynamic-loading ring-shear apparatus were designed in a small dimensions (compare with DPRI series) but with high performances. Thus, shallow landslide as well as deep landslide can be simulated geotechnically using this apparatus. In this paper, the structure, control and loading system of the apparatus are described in detail. The testing procedures and data analysis of ring shear tests are also explained.
