VW Rebar Strainmeter

Overview

The Model 4911 Rebar Strainmeter is designed for measuring strains in foundations, slurry walls, precast piles, caissons, bridge abutments, tunnel liners, etc. The standard Model 4911 (#4 rebar), known as the “Sister Bar,” is installed alongside structural rebar. Larger models (4911A) are available for welding directly into structural rebar. Where short-term dynamic measurements are to be made, bonded resistance (Model 3911/3911A) strain gages can be substituted, or added.
