USES OF AUTOMATED GEOTECHNICAL INSTRUMENTATION SYSTEMS

Developments in electronics and instrumentation offer the promise of lower costs and improved reliability for electronic systems to monitor geotechnical instrumentation. The miniaturization of electronics, reduction of power consumption, reduced component cost, and improved component reliability all help to make new instruments possible and geotechnical instrumentation more cost effective. This paper details the application of some of these developments to 3 problems and summarizes the potential benefits to the engineer from their use.
