Measurement systems are an essential element of modern-day foundation engineering. They are a key tool in assuring quality of execution, with the results obtained also being used as the basis for planning and for the selection of cost-effective methods. Measurement results are also applied in verifying plans.
The expectation nowadays is that a large amount of data will be recorded continuously, visualized online and continuously evaluated. The measurement systems enable problem situations arising from unplanned deformation and strain states to be detected rapidly so that an immediate response can be initiated before damage occurs. Continuous measurement improves quality and performance, as well as helping to cut costs.
Bauer deploys all the standard measurement methods of foundation engineering, optimizing many of them in terms of workflow, data acquisition and evaluation. Problem-specific solutions are continually being devised with the aid of state-of-the-art computer hardware and software, automatic process control technology and the latest transducer technology and construction engineering processes. Bauer has developed a state-of-the-art data acquisition system, featuring online visualization and remote data transfer, based on standard commercially available components which it adapts to the various tasks faced in specialist foundation engineering. It enables deformation, load, temperature and displacement states to be immediately calculated, represented and compared to the specified limit values. If limit values are exceeded, visual or acoustic alarms can be triggered.
We offer complete solutions for your measurement tasks. They incorporate comprehensive advice as well as execution of the task at hand, evaluation and report generation – all from one source. Another area of focus is on developing new measurement methods, instrumentation and data acquisition and visualization systems.
Special site instrumentation is delivered and installed, and measurements are carried out, by engineers and technicians from the Site Instrumentation department.
