Rod extensometers

Rod extensometers are installed in boreholes in order to monitor displacements at various depth using rods of different materials and lengths.

A pre-set length of measuring rod is inserted into a nylon tube to avoid soil friction and its tip is fixed to a steel groutable anchor. Preassembled fibre glass rods are coiled when manufactured and shipped ready for installation.

Stainless steel and invar rods are supplied in bars of 2 meters length; they need to be mounted on-site.

The complete rod extensometer assembly is grouted through a dedicated tube, fixing the anchors to the rock or soil but, at the same time, allowing free movement of each rod within its sleeve..
