Hydrostatic  elevation measuring

hoehe
applications

     

  • elevation of pipes
  • slope
  • covering of culvert pipes
  • settlement of constructions

 

measuring principle
A constant hydrostatic pressure is supplied by a water-filled level box (Niveaugefäß) via a small water pipe towards a pressure cell. The hydrostatic pressure is proportional to the elevation difference between the outside water level and the measuring sensor inside the pipe. The relation provides the geodetic elevation difference, msl altitude can be calculated.

procedure

The sensor will be placed in the pipe by means of

     

  • TV-Vehicle (right image)
  • tension rope
  • flexible fiber stick (up to 250 m)

The measuring is conducted either at local points (standard distance 0,5-2m)
or
over a certain time-period at one point (level gage)

combination with other measurings (temperature) is possible
