Abstract:

A system to measure the friction at the sidewall of the earth shock tube has been designed. Four Baldwin-LimaHamilton load cells, one attached at each corner of a flange, will support the suspended shock tube, and hence will indicate the total downward force exerted on the shock tube during application of force to the soil column.
