Part 2. Principles of Instrumentation Measurement – Error, Accuracy and Resolution,

INTRODUCTION: Part 2 is written as an aid to help Earth scientists and Civil Engineers and technicians to understand and use instrumentation and transducers in the soil mechanics and rock mechanics laboratories.

This is not a full technical description of how such instrumentation and transducers are designed or indeed how they work in detail. We hope this will enable the end user to intelligently make use of the electronic “black boxes” and the many transducers that now abound in the soil mechanics laboratory without having to do a PhD in electronics!
