Abstract

Contact soil pressure cells belong to a group of electrical instruments that include electrical transducers of miscellaneous designs. In the past three or so decades numerous types of electrical transducers and associated data acquisition systems have been introduced to the market. Comprehensive reference to these instruments are given in Lion (1959), Perry and Lissner (1962), Prensky (1963), Stein (1964), Cerni and Foster (1965), Norton (1969), Arthur (1970), Considine (1971), Herceg (1972), Spitzer and Howarth (1972), Wolf (1973), Carlson (1975), Dunnicliff (1988), and in numerous works by engineers and scientists in the former USSR. References to these latter works are given elsewhere in this book.
