Abstract : A dual bending beam dynamic triaxial interface stress transducer was designed and built. Cross-axis sensitivities and unwanted input sensitivities were quite low. Both static and dynamic testing were performed to determine transducer response in an actual sand/concrete interface environment. Results showed that the shear-gage response followed the inferred shear response in trend, with outputs typically 65 percent of the inferred shear. (Author)
