Hello all,



We are about to install some AMTI force plates into a pit that is 3m long x
1.3m wide x 0.75m deep. Before the force plates are installed the pit depth
must be made smaller. What is the best material to use between the
floor/walls and the additional concrete that is going to be poured (force
plates sit onto) to eliminate surrounding noise/vibrations etc? We have
heard that Sikaflex would do the job however, some people have commented
that it would move after the concrete has been poured.



Please respond with what material would be the best?
