Liquid Settlement System

Liquid Settlement System

Designed to monitor settlement or heave in soils and other structures such as embankments, earth and rockfill dams.
A vibrating wire pressure sensor is attached to a settlement plate located at the point of settlement. The sensor is connected via two liquid-filled tubes, extending laterally, to a reservoir located on stable ground. The sensor measures the hydraulic head of liquid between the sensor and reservoir locations. A vented cable runs from the sensor to a remote readout location.

Features:

-Not affected by barometric pressure
-In-situ checks available
-Air can be easily removed
-Manual or automated readout
-Reservoir can be sited away from construction area
