The SCT SmartShear is a cost effective routine shear monitoring instrument for borehole application in underground excavations based on a MEMs tiltmeter sensor. SmartShear allows for accurately determining the location, timing, magnitude, and sense of shear displacement in 3D.
SmartShear provides sufficient resolution to resolve discrete bedding plane shear and strata failure surfaces. The instrument allows fast and easy installation into open boreholes. Easy activation of the mechanical anchors means monitoring can start immediately as no borehole grouting is required.
