Terratek Cell

General Information

Terratek Cell.

Highly accurate strain gauges measure the deformations. Acoustic transient and pulse-echo measurements can be performed simultaneously. The first installation was in 1995, but recently fully updated.

Laboratory of Geoscience and Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering and  Geosciences, Stevinweg 1, Delft (Building #23).

Key Words:
Strain gauges.

Main Application:
Cell, used for rock deformations under in-situ external loading conditions.

Instrument Specification:
Cell with axial pressures up to 260 bar; radial ones up to 700 bar.
