Soil Strainmeter

The soil strainmeter employs a potentiometer and a rod mounted between two anchors to monitor horizontal movements of the surrounding soil. These components are linked together so that movement of one anchor relative to the other causes a change in the output of the potentiometer. The initial reading of the strainmeter is used as a datum. Subsequent readings are compared to the datum to calculate the magnitude, rate, and acceleration of movement
