Settlement Monitoring System

This system can be used for monitoring settlement and displacement of road pavements and structures (e.g. Bridges, tunnels). If the settlements occurred within a period of a few months or years, would result in severe pavement damage. It is therefore important to be able to accurately measure and monitor the amount of displacement at set locations over a period of time.

Operating Princple:

Settlement Monitoring System consists of a series of vessels containing liquid level sensors interconnected by a liquid filled tube. A reference vessel is positioned at a stable bench mark location with additional vessels positioned at different locations at approximately the same elevation. Differential settlement between any vessel and the reference vessel results in an apparent rise or fall of the liquid level in that vessel.
