Inclinometer training

Project

The LAMP project at LAX in California is a multi-billion dollar program for modernizing access to and from the airport. One part of the project involved jacking a 42-inch gas line under existing structures at Aviation Boulevard.

Monitoring Requirement

GEO-Instruments was contracted to provide drilling, borehole logging, instrumentation supply, installation, commissioning, and training for the client.

Implementation

GEO-Instruments installed and automated MPBX (borehole extensometers) and UMP (Utility Monitoring Points) to monitor possible settlements from the microtunneling. Inclinometers were installed to monitor lateral displacements. GEO trained users how to manually survey the inclinometers with a traversing probe systems (shown in the photo).
