The vane-shear devices currently in use exhibit inherent problems and shortcomings associated with their design. The PGS Vane-Shear Apparatus is designed to eliminate these shortcomings. The unique features of the device include 1 Ability to be used in the laboratory or on board ship. 2 A single unit which is easily calibrated and capable of measuring torque over the entire range commonly encountered in marine sediments. 3 A torque transducer which is insensitive to temperature changes and orientation. 4 Ability to determine shear strength prior to cutting the core liner, thus reducing the disturbance to the sediment caused by cutting and handling.
