Slip Indicator System


The Slip Indicator system is used to determine within a soil mass the location of a zone in which movement is occurring.

A flexible slip indicator pipe with base plate is inserted into the base of a borehole and surrounded with sand. When lateral movement of the soil occurs, the flexible tube becomes deformed in the zone of movement.

Indicator probes attached to a length of support rope are used to determine the zone of movement.
