Description: Technical Report
Abstract: Two research studies were conducted by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station, both related to leaky coaxial cable sensors. In one study, the newly developed TR1 sensor cable was tested and evaluated. Basic performance characteristics of the TR1 cable were determined including detection field width/heigth and invalid alarm rate. In the other study, alternate sealant materials and a revised slot/sealant configuration were evaluated for sensor cable installation in pavement The sealant evaluation indicated that the Will-Seal 150 and all of the silicone materials evaluated in this study were technically satisfactory for cable installation. The revised slot/sealant configuration also appeared to have no adverse effect on the sensor cable deployment.
