Survey of Laboratory Devices for Measuring Soil Volume Change



A review of devices for measuring soil volume change in triaxial testing was made. Emphasis was placed on those devices with electrical transducers to permit recording or automatic data logging. The devices are classified according to type, and the advantages and limitations of each are presented. An indication of the sensitivity and capacity is also given when this information was available.
