Abstract

The purpose of the work of this thesis was to design, construct, and calibrate miniature load cells to measure the pressure variation on the side wall and bottom of a compression-permeability cell due to applied load at top of the cell and to obtain sufficient data to prove satisfactory performance of the equipment. The results obtained for "SOLKA-FLOC" filter cake material are consistent, and check well with the previous work of Tschebotarioff [2] and Welch.L J Details of the material and procedures used in construction and calibration of the load cells are given.
