MULTIPLEPIEZOMETER FOR PORE WATER PRESSURE MEASUREMENT IN CLAY

MULTIPELPIEZOMETER FOER PORVATTENTRYCK- MAETNING I LERA

A NEW TYPE OF APPARATUS FOR PORE WATER PRESSURE MEASUREMENT, THE MULTIPLEPIEZOMETER, HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AT THE INSTITUTE OF GEOTECHNICS AT THE ROYAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, STOCKHOLM IN COOPERATION WITH THE COMPANY GEOTECH AB, ASKIM, SWEDEN. THE MEASURING METHOD IS BASED ON THE PENDULUM PRINCIPLE. THE IMPULSE SIGNAL IS AMPLIFIED IN THE POINT OF THE PIEZOMETER, THUS PREVENTING DISTURBANCE WHEN THE IMPULSE IS TRANSMITTED TO THE COUNTER DEVICE ON THE GROUND SURFACE. AN ARBITRARY NUMBER OF PIEZOMETERS CAN BE CONNECTED WITH PIPES AND PORE WATER PRESSURE MEASUREMENT CAN BE PERFORMED AT SEVERAL LEVELS SIMULTANEOUSLY (CONTINOUS PORE PRESSURE PROFILE.)
