DEVELOPMENT OF A SOIL STRESS GAGE FOR THE RANGE 0.05 TO 1 GPA (1 1/2 TO 10 KBAR)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DTRA
Principal Investigator: Dr andres peekna
Award Amount: $45,540.00
Abstract:
It is proposed to develop a stress gage for the range 1/2 to 10 kilobars, suitable for use in soil and weak rock, in free-field and on-structure applications. in addition to the usual compressive stress sensing capability, there would also be a shear stress sensing option; the two measurement… More

Development of Rock Stress Gage

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DTRA
Principal Investigator: Dr. Andres Peekna
Award Amount: $65,727.00
Abstract:
The concept combines inherent lack of significant sensitivity to unwanted stress components with practicality of coupling to rock with little or no grout. building on a foundation of ghorough theoretical analysis and demonstration of manufacturing feasibility based on previous work, the objective is… More

Measuring Time Dependent Pavement Surface Deflection Profiles Under Rolling Vehicles Using a Portable System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Andres Peekna, President
Award Amount: $69,337.00
Abstract:
Several of the approaches proposed would involve arrays of vertical-sensing sensors plus horizontal-sensing sensors supported by a 4-meter long lightweight beam. End supports could extend out from the roadside, or consist of longitudinal extenders. Thevertical-sensing sensors would sense road… More
