RMTEC provides clients with rock mechanics instrumentation and monitoring services to ensure the safety and stability of deep excavations. These projects may include underground tunnels, bridges, dams, buildings and other essential public infrastructure.
Our precision-designed monitoring process helps us track ground vibrations, rock movements and support loads and pressures. With this, we are able to identify potential hazard levels in order to design an appropriate contingency plan. This plan safeguards the installation, reading and result reporting phases all the way through to regular, long-term monitoring.
Monitoring is critical as any disturbance of rock could impact surrounding properties both short-term and long-term, as well as affect your own building site as the ground shifts over time. Our advanced techniques ensure rock and soil profile, as well as groundwater levels, are in ideal conditions for building and meet local laws and regulations. We maintain a monitoring process throughout the construction phase as well as after it in order to check for structural changes and address problems before they have time to develop.
During the instrumentation phase of any project, we utilize various instruments that enable us to measure everything from temperature and deformation to groundwater, pore pressure and stress in soil and rock. We utilize some of the most advanced technologies to assess the current conditions of your building site’s rock formations and accurately measure extremely sensitive data. The instrumentation we use is reliable, trusted, time-tested and is the very selection we employ in various projects throughout our coverage areas.
Blasting is essential to various projects that require explosions like mining, excavations and demolitions. Monitoring the vibrations caused close to the blast enables our team to assess the effects caused by the blast. For structures located in the zone of the blast impact, vibration levels will be recorded to assess potential damage. These various types of seismic monitoring measure ground motion, velocity, air pressure waves and acceleration to evaluate the damage within the blast site.
