A Weber detector (a solid-body detector of the resonance kind) will have no response to a falling gravitational wave of the pure deformation kind, if the particles of which the detector is composed are at rest at the initial moment of measurements (the situation assumed in the Weber experiment).
One important consequence of the Weber experiment was that, based on what was learned about the kind of environment rats need to function in space, General Dynamics designed and built an elaborate life-support system for rats that has since been used on numerous space flights involving rat experiments.
Back in New York, Weber experimented with cubism as he worked toward his own style.
