Monitoring of a clay embankment in respect of the risk of torrential rains

This talus was located along a very busy 'A' road, over a site having already experienced landslides in the past, undoubtedly caused by torrential rains or earthquakes. Wishing to ensure the safety of motorists who travel along the road, the client decided to monitor the embankment. From the start of the installation of the OSMOS sensors, the results showed that the embankment was stable and that the only deformations detected were linked to fluctuations in temperature. In future, the client may be notified early if the behaviour of the embankment changes.
