Interpretation of field measurements of stress in soil using embedded gages requires proper calibration and a knowledge of the performance of the gages in soil. This paper describes an easy-to-construct and inexpensive fluid calibration chamber for soil stress gages. A suggested soil calibration facility is also described. Examples of calibration results are given to illustrate the type of information that can be obtained.
