Eddy current sensors measure displacement of soil samples
High precision eddy current sensors from Micro-Epsilon are being used to measure the displacement of soil samples on a complex Hollow Cylindrical Torsional Apparatus (HCTA) in the Department of Civil Engineering at University of Bristol.
The HCTA is equipped with a complex strain measurement system that incorporates six Micro-Epsilon eddyNCDT 3010, high-resolution non-contact displacement sensors. The test rig will enable the study of the pre-failure deformation characteristics and strains behaviour via continuous tests on a single soil sample.
