Abstract : Two research studies were conducted by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, both related to eaky coaxial cable sensors. In one study, the newly developed TR I sensor cable was tested and evaluated. Basic performance characteristics of the TRl cable were determined including detection field width/height and invalid alarm rate. In the other study, alternate sealant materials and a revised slot/sealant configuration were evaluated for sensor cable installation in pavement. The sealant evaluation indicated that the Will-Seal 150 and all of the silicone rnaterials evaluated in this study were technically satisfactory for cable installation. The revised slot/sealant configuration also appeared to have no adverse effect on the sensor cable deployment. (MM)
