Making Civil Engineering Safer By Taking a Leaf Out of Mining’s Book: Part 2 – Dataloggers and Civil Wireless Monitoring

In Part 1  of this discussion, we spoke about the benefits of using multi-point borehole extensometers as a structural integrity monitoring tool in a civil engineering environment. Of course, installing MPBXs is of no benefit on its own. They need to be monitored and provide useful data to be of any real value and make a meaningful contribution to safety. Once installed,...

Making Civil Engineering Safer By Taking a Leaf Out of Mining’s Book: Part 1 – Using Extensometers for Civil Structural Monitoring

As you well know, tunnels and other civil structures are subject to factors like shifting and subsidence, putting them at risk of sudden catastrophic failure in extreme circumstances and making them prone to long-term damage as they age. Obviously, continuous geotechnical monitoring of civil structures is one of the keys to ensuring safety, but unfortunately attempts to achieve this in the...

The Best Way to Collect Data from Geotechnical Instruments

Mine and civil engineers often make use of a variety of geotechnical instruments to monitor the status and movement within geological features and man-made structures, mostly as part of their safety management programs. The data from these installed instruments is collected one of three ways: Manual Data Collection – A staff member moves through the site and connects a datalogger to each instrument in...

Collect Data Wirelessly and On the Go with the SMART Link-BLT Wireless Module [infographic]

The recently-released SMART Link-BLT wireless module makes data collection simpler than ever before. When paired with a tablet running the MDT SMART app, manual readings can be easily taken from instruments that that are not connected to a mesh sensor or other type of network.
