Thick film sensors for soil measurements

Gerardo Espindola Garcia, Prof John Atkinson and Dr Joel Smethurst Conference Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Sensor Device Technologies and Applications SENSORDEVICES 2017 ISBN 978-1-61208-581-4 First published 10.09.2017 Abstract Water content has considerable influence on soil pore water pressure and shear strength, potentially leading to failure in earthworks. This research aims to develop …
