    Abstract

    As the impacts of failing geotechnical infrastructure become more apparent, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is now more commonly being applied to geotechnical assets: levees, earth dams, landslides, and foundation soils. In particular, real-time monitoring programs are now becoming considered essential for monitoring the performance, or identifying impending failure, of high-risk geosystems. This paper presents several case studies of real-time monitoring of embankments and slopes on Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) projects using MEMS-based in-place inclinometer, ShapeAccelArray (SAA), systems. Background on the SAA inclinometer-accelerometer array system is presented as well as observed project and performance benefits with respect to other displacement monitoring systems. Benefits of real-time monitoring and the larger concept of performance monitoring and SHM of geotechnical assets by remote sensing are discussed.
