NATM Style Shotcrete Stress (VW) - Model 4850

The Model 4850 NATM Style Shotcrete Stress Cells are designed for the measurement of tangential (4850-1) and radial (4850-2) stresses in shotcrete tunnel linings. The cells consist of two rectangular steel plates welded together around the periphery with a de-aired fluid occupying the space between the plates. A short tube connects the cell to a vibrating wire pressure transducer. A prestressing tube is provided for expanding the cell after the concrete has cured. Cells of this type are also used for measurements of stress in mass concrete.
