Abstract : The report describes the assembly techniques required in the fabrication of the SE-type soil stress gage. A detailed, step-by-step procedure is developed. The gage is capable of both static and dynamic stress measurements in various types of soils. It has been laboratory- and field-evaluated in several soil types, and is being used more or less routinely for stress measurements. There is no known commercially available counterpart. An appendix is included giving recommended surface preparation procedures for bonding with epoxy adhesives. (Author)
