Mastering Natural
Processes


Mission:
"Develop, recommend and disseminate a new technology for monitoring natural or artificial slopes and geotechnical structures, ...
in order to enhance our understanding of their dynamics, strengthen the theoretical interpretation of their behavior and make their design safer, economical and reliable during construction and beyond."
Project:
MUMS is a modular monitoring system for the natural environment, mainly designed for measurement of subsoil displacements induced by gravitational movements. ...
The system is alternative to those currently in use and offers advantages in terms of performance, durability, personnel and economy. MUMS measures the deformations, remotely and automatically, by means of a series of nodes installed in the subsoil, electrically and hydraulically isolated, and connected along a single cable to a surface data logger. Data are processed by a dedicated software and plotted in order to obtain the 3D shape of the whole system. Other types of MUMS nodes are designed to be serially connected to the MUMS System, such as piezometers, precision thermometers, etc. MUMS can also be used to monitor the deformation of various structures, such as piers and diaphragms.
Services:
In addition to the production and commercialization of the innovative MUMS instrumentations, ASE offers a variety of services related to the field monitoring and to the geotechnical structures performances. ...
