Autonomous Remote Crack Displacement Monitoring of a Residence Near a Limestone Quarry, Naples, FloridaPublic Deposited
This paper describes the technology and methods deployed in the continuous autonomous remote monitoring of cracks in interior and exterior walls of a residence near a limestone quarry. The object is to quantitatively compare crack response to blast-induced ground motion to that induced by diurnal temperature changes, weather fronts, and occupant activity. The remote monitoring system described has operated continuously and autonomously since June 2007. Data are made available for review in near-real time via a password-protected web site. Complementary web sites display measurements made for research and compliance purposes.
