Measurand presents this webinar in collaboration with sensemetrics.

Join Jeff Barrett from Measurand and Todd Roberts from sensemetrics as they walk you through a case study addressing a portion of the wall deformation monitoring system installed at Yeager airport. This webinar will specifically address the benefits of ShapeArray deformation sensors paired with sensemetrics’ cloud-based data monitoring platform. The webinar will focus on the benefits of real-time deformation monitoring during construction and the ease of installation of the Measurand and sensemetrics system.  

Case study: 

Yeager airport, approximately 5 km (3 miles) east of downtown Charleston, West Virginia, sits on a hill with steep slopes on several sides. In 2015, a reinforced slope failure impacted operations at Yeager airport by damaging the existing Engineered Materials Arrestor System (EMAS). In response to this event, a permanent and robust solution was required to meet local, state, and federal design requirements. Therefore, Schnabel Engineering designed a multi-element (hybrid) retaining wall structure 25m (83 ft) in height and the associated monitoring program.

The monitoring program consisted of both Measurand model SAAF and SAAV sensors and were paired with other geotechnical sensors. This combined technology allowed engineers to correlate field measurements with the design models and adjust anchor loading conditions to help maintain wall alignment.  In addition, real-time monitoring provided confidence to the engineers that internal components of the wall were not being overstressed or subjected to unexpected deformation.
