Settlement monitoring is very important to evaluate the possible problems and for risk management related to ground displacement on surface or underground constructions. Settlement monitoring is used in the field of tunnelling
, embankments, deep excavations
, foundations, retaining walls as diaphragm walls, and buildings affected by possible differential settlement.
To suit different types of applications and their accuracy requirements, Encardio-rite offers the following settlement systems:
EGS-30V settlement measurement system is designed for monitoring settlement infills, embankments, and dams, etc. It comprises a vibrating wire sensor connected to a reservoir via a fluid-filled polyethene sheathed twin nylon tubing. The sensor is installed in soil fill and the reservoir is mounted on firm ground.
The ESM-30V high sensitivity liquid level settlement measuring system is designed for remote measurement of minute differential settlement in tunnels, bridges and buildings with high precision.
The system uses a low range vibrating wire force transducer with a submersible cylinder suspended in fluid-filled vessels interconnected in series by a fluid-filled tube.
The model EHOS-35 hydraulic overflow settlement system is suitable for measurement of settlement or heave in an embankment of a dam or infills where the settlement cell (sensor) and terminal structure or observation room can be nearly at the same elevation.
Encardio-rite model EAN-61MS in-place 3D inclinometer with settlement (IPIS) system is used wherever lateral movement along with settlement/heave is to be monitored in a borewell or on a structure. It finds wide application in the measurement of lateral movement and settlement in soil, earthworks, slopes or structures like retaining/diaphragm walls, embankment, deep foundations or dams etc. It is also very useful in monitoring landslide areas.
