Abstract:

The strain gage instrumentation of a buoyant cable used for submarine ELF receiving antennas is presented. Techniques were developed to bond the strain gage reliably to the polyethylene cable jacket and to seal the jacket using an injection molding process. The design of a low noise strain gage amplifier for dynamic strain measurements is discussed, and the general problem of measuring strain at a remote point is considered.
