Abstract

Real-time monitoring of civil infrastructure provides valuable information to assess the health and condition of the associated systems. This paper presents a recently developed in-place inclinometer-accelerometer array system, which constitutes a major step toward long-term effective health monitoring and analysis of soil and soil-structure systems. The sensor array is based on triaxial MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical System) sensors to measure in situ deformation (angles relative to gravity) and dynamic accelerations up to a depth of one hundred meters. This paper provides an assessment of the performance of this system for geotechnical instrumentation applications by reviewing the recorded field data from a full-scale levee test facility in the Netherlands.
