  • When Acceleration Acts on an Inclinometer

    High precision inclinometers are vital to provide feedback on the tilt of a plethora of applications, but what happens when it is placed in an environment that includes linear motion? Many applications will put some acceleration on an inclinometer such as rail maintenance of way, pavement profiling and robotics and as the sensor’s user, you should know what to expect in your readings. ...

  • ASM Introduces Compact MEMS Inclinometer for OEM Applications

    Automated Control Engineering is the exclusive national supplier of the newest ASM product. ASM has introduced its smallest addition to the POSITILT® inclinometer series that is available in single and dual axis versions. By using MEMS technology, this new inclinometer PTAM20 series is packaged into a very compact, flat housing making it ideally suited for OEM applications. The measurement ...

  • 2001 IFAI award Broadmoor road, Bayside, Wisconsin - Case Study

    Those were among the challenges offi-cials of Bayside, Wisconsin, presented to Bonestroo, Rosene, Anderlik & Associates, a Mequon, Wisconsin-based engineering firm. The project involved an embankment that sup-ports Broadmoor Road and the Union Pacific Railroad where they cross Fish Creek in this upscale suburb north of Milwaukee. Periodic inclinometer readings and cracks in the paved road and ...

  • Determination of P-Y Curves Using Inclinometer Data

    Derivation of p-y curves from lateral load tests on deep foundations is a tedious and expensive task, requiring large numbers of strain gages along the length of the pile to develop bending moment versus depth relationships. A method is proposed which allows derivation of p-y curves from simple inclinometer data using a least-squares regression technique. Inclinometer measurements can and have ...

  • Use of Air Bag System for Instrumentation of Lateral Load Tests on Previously Installed Pipe Piles

    A simple and inexpensive air bag system for allowing measurement of the deflected shape of laterally loaded piles has been developed. The air bag system may be used for hollow piles that have already been installed. The system includes an inclinometer casing that is held against the inner wall of the pile by an inflated air bag. Tests on small- and large-diameter steel pipe piles at two different ...
