Heave and settlement monitoring system
This measuring system is suitable to use in building monitoring especially in those cases where secondary compaction occurs.
The system is composed of:
– Plexiglas containers where to read level
– Pipes to connect container to each other
– Optical read systems or level transducer
– Data logger and web server
Basically this system reacts to the heave and settlements with changes in level inside Plexiglas container. The level variations are measured with high precision level sensors or read by a technician to obtain a measurement of the heave entity.
