Landslide Technology has extensive experience planning, installing, monitoring, and maintaining specialized geotechnical instrumentation and data acquisition systems. This includes standpipe and vibrating wire piezometers, inclinometers, crackmeters, and automated data acquisition systems (ADAS). Our experience has been utilized on a variety of projects, ranging from large, complex projects involving hundreds of instruments including 'cloud' backup, to very small projects involving manually read inclinometers and piezometers.
As a core service, Landslide Technology develops and implements exploration and instrumentation plans that address the primary unknowns related to unstable slopes; where and when is the slope moving, what is the water level, and how deep is the shear zone. Once these key slope parameters are established, slope performance can be modeled to better understand the factors that cause the slope to move. Mitigation options can also be modeled to evaluate the influence on stability and the overall economics of a slope repair project.
We are firm believers that the simplest system that fits the project needs is the best system, and our engineers and geologists work with our clients to develop systems that are cost effective and easy to use.
