Monitoring settlement in excavations, foundations, and embankments.
Monitoring of subsidence above mines and tunnels.
Monitoring movements in slides, rock walls, and abutments.
Monitoring consolidation of soil under embankments and surcharges.
Monitoring compression of piles and soil under piles.
Monitoring sprEAD in embankments.
Other Types of Extensometers..:
