Geotechnical Instrumentation & Monitoring
CAST Laboratories is experienced in installing and monitoring equipment to study geotechnical problems which are often associated with projects involving Foundation, Deep Excavation, and Underground tunnels, On-ground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Systems, Expressways and Flyovers. In deep excavation work, the use of geotechnical instrumentation is an essential tool for monitoring the behaviour of the works. The data collected can also be used to compare actual movements against design predictions.
Our geotechnical instrumentation & monitoring team works with various well-known contractors on numerous large-scale projects and is able to provide comprehensive inspection services solutions integrated with our Site Investigation services.
Our Geotechnical Instrumentation services include monitoring of lateral and Vertical Ground Movement, Pore Water Response and other aspects of geotechnical behaviour.
We can conduct Structural Monitoring using equipment such as:
Building Settlement Markers
We can also conduct Real-time Monitoring System and Automatic Deformation Monitoring System (inside tunnels and on structures) using:
Automatic Total Station
Among the instruments we use are the:
Load cells in deep excavations
