AbstractTwo systems are described for electronic recording of changes in the volume of pore water for triaxial testing of soils: one using a miniature force transducer to measure by direct weighing; the other based upon a float system connected to the core of a differential transformer. Both systems provide measurement of volume change at least as accurately as may be obtained by visual reading of burettes graduated to 0.1 cm(3), i.e. to + or - 0.05 cm(3).
