Abstract:

This report details work undertaken in the development of a new design of fast response piezometer. Intended for measurement of transient pore water pressures in soils the device features a novel two-stage emplacement technique. The system is capable of achieving a responsive coupling with the interstitial fluid in the region of measurement, and can operate over a broad range of pressures encompassing those encountered in blast loading conditions.
