    This paper reviews some of the current systems in use for the application of cyclic loads to soil specimens. Their main features and principles of operation are described. A relatively low-cost electropneumatic system recently developed at the University of California at Berkeley is described in detail. This system provides sinusoidal and other shape load traces using normal compressed air controlled electronically and is an assembly of commercially available components.
