A capacitative cell apparatus

  • G. De Josselin de Jong
Part of the Theory and Applications of Transport in Porous Media book series (TATP, volume 19)

The article describes a test device which permits the determination of the horizontal strain of cylindrical samples under loading conditions without touching the sample by means of an electrical capacitive method. Tests on samples to study at rest pressure, compression and shear separately are outlined.

The conception of shear resistance, according to the sample behavior as determined by this test device, is discussed.
