Displacements along profiles

Displacement profiles along boreholes or in piles and retaining walls are important for geotechnical assessment and inspection of structures.

  • With the sliding micrometer, displacements are measured with high precision axially to the measuring line.
  • In addition to axial displacements, the Trivec also measures radial displacements. Thus, displacement vectors can be determined.
  • Similar to the sliding micrometer, the sliding deformeter measures axial displacements relative to the measuring line. It has a much larger measuring range and a lower measuring accuracy than the sliding micrometer.
  • The FIM is used for automatic, axial displacement measurement in sections of sliding micrometer measuring tubes.
  • With the Clino-Chain, displacements are automatically measured radially to the measuring tube direction.
