Monitoring of Castelnovo Don Bosco Landslide

| Name: Castelnuovo Don Bosco | Location: Castelnuovo Don Bosco (AT) | Start of the monitoring: June 2016 | Client: Unione dei Comuni Alto Astigiani | Responsible for monitoring: Unione dei Comuni Alto Astigiani|

Castelnuovo Don Bosco (AT), and in particular the provincial road which connects to Nevissano town, is a site interested by a landslide. The road is periodically closed due to high displacements and the town is isolated. To monitor the deformations of the ground in real time and provide an Early Warning System, one Tilt Array chain has been installed in June 2016.
The site is instrumented with a tilt chain 12 m long, equipped with 24 Tilt Link V sensors (spaced 50 cm) and 1 Tilt Link HR V sensor.
Control unit queries nodes at defined time intervals and saves them into a SD card. Data are transmitted with UMTS connection to the elaboration centre, where an automatic software elaborates them. Results are available on a web platform in a few minutes.
