Embankment extensometers

Embankment extensometers are used to measure soil strains in large earth structures. During the construction stage, the embankment extensometers are usually incorporated in the filling material.
The system consists of a number of anchor plates connected by extension rods to the measuring elements.

The measuring elements is a telescopic tube equipped with a vibrating wire displacement transducer to monitor the change in distance between two anchor plates.
A number of elements may be chained together by means of 1,2 or 3 m extension rods. Vibrating wire displacement transducers are available in different ranges for measuring up to 150 mm of displacement
