Geotechnical monitoring includes different kinds of monitoring which consists of environmental monitoring, bridge monitoring or any other monitoring which might be of use to the engineers or other people who are in close connection with it. It can prove to be more useful if it is used right from the beginning i.e. from the designing stage, operations and the maintenance stage. Security is another major consideration wherein geotechnical monitoring plays an important role.

Importance of Monitoring :

Environmental Measurements: With this monitoring, one can have an insight on the ground water level, dump stability, etc. Special devices are used for conducting such kind of monitoring which is exposed to different sets of risks i.e. rust, whereas some special instruments are capable of handling high temperature levels making it capable of being used anytime and anywhere.

Bridge Monitoring: This kind of monitoring keeps a track of the system and is basically used for increasing the life of a bridge and providing security to the people using it. These systems continuously monitor the bridges and ensure that technicians and engineers are available right on time for securing condition of the bridge. In case, if any threat is foreseen then system automatically sends out an alert message, conveying people on what preventive steps are required to be taken to prevent any damage or casualties.

Monitoring Services:

There are various business houses that enjoy geotechnical services and other monitoring services out of which some of them have been listed below;

• Use of geotechnical instruments

• Analysis of information provided by monitoring

• Supply of relevant instruments for carrying out monitoring

• Anxiety management Due to various benefits achieved through this monitoring, companies across the world is making use of these instruments and are also getting an insight into the structures.

Monitoring in Construction:

In construction, monitoring plays an important role, wherein the function begins is obviously concerned about life process management and ideally begins from the designing stage. In the designing stage, the prime function of monitoring is to validate the designs and find out if such a design is feasible on the construction site and can hold on for a long period of time. In case some issues are noticed, then same are dealt to ensure that structure remains steadier for a longer period of time.

It can be very well understood, that through the process of construction monitoring plays a critical role and it is important to keep an eye on the whole procedure. Even in cases any damage is reported, then owner of the surroundings ensures to submit the case and monitoring system authorities i.e. rail monitoring or other monitoring companies and they investigate the case to find out the possible issues and resolutions which can be achieved easily on time.
