A Self-Adjusting, Null-Point Tensiometer1

  1. Ralph A. Leonard and
  2. Philip F. Low2



This paper describes a new tensiometer which does not allow water passage through the porous cup and which automatically adjusts the measuring manometer to the correct tension value. It can be used to measure dynamic as well as static tensions. Performance data, which are given and discussed, indicate the accuracy of the tensiometer is within 2%.
