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.
