    Abstract

    Automated data acquisition systems combined with appropriate test transducers and dynamic recording equipment can provide the benefits of improved measurement of test values and better use of laboratory personnel in geotechnical testing laboratories. This paper suggests requirements for such data acquisition systems and discusses characteristics that should be designed into the systems to avoid operational difficulties. Tables are provided showing suggested transducer performance characteristics and data acquisition response characteristics.
