Abstract : A minicomputer based set of instrumentation was purchased and configured for use in experimental studies involving transient seismic waves in soil, rock and pavement systems. This instrumentation is capable of performing: multi-channel data acquisition (up to 64) at very high speeds (1 MHz digitizer), intensive numerical computations rapidly on captured waveforms, and real-time graphical displays of the raw and analyzed data. Keywords: Seismic waves; Electronic instrumentation; Minicomputer; Hardware; Software; Time domain analysis; Frequency domain analysis.
