MEASUREMENT OF HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL DISPLACEMENTS

MESURE DES DEPLACEMENTS HORIZONTAUX ET VERTICAUX

THE AIM OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO IMPROVE AND DEVELOP APPARATUS FOR MEASURING SOIL DISPLACEMENTS. IN 1977, IT IS ENVISAGED: TO IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF THE MEASUREMENTS OF DEEP SETTLEMENTS; TO STUDY THE FIXING IN THE SOIL OF INCLINOMETERS AND TO IMPROVE THE POSITIONING OF MEASURING GAUGES; TO DEVELOP AN APPARATUS FOR MEASURING POREWATER PRESSURE IN HIGH MOISTURE CONTENT CONDITIONS; TO DEVELOP AND TEST AN APPARATUS FOR MEASURING AND RECORDING SETTLEMENTS; TO STUDY THE DRILLING OF INCLINOMETERS.
