    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method outlines the procedure for calibrating linear displacement transducers (LDTs) and their readout systems for geotechnical purposes. It covers any transducer used to measure displacement which gives an electrical output that is linearly proportional to displacement. This includes linear variable displacement transducers (LVDT's), linear displacement transducers (LDTs) and linear strain transducers (LST's).

    1.2 This calibration procedure is used to determine the relationship between output of the transducer and its readout system and change in length. This relationship is used to convert readings from the transducer readout system into engineering units.

    1.3 This calibration procedure also is used to determine the accuracy of the transducer and its readout system over the range of its use to compare with the manufacturer's specifications for the instrument and the suitability of the instrument for a specific application.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
