When the geodetic monitoring capacity, sediment marks is used which allows monitoring the foundation settlement. The first measurement cycle is carried sediment, as a rule, immediately after the construction of foundations. The number of measuring cycles of sediment foundation in a period of time to achieve full load of the building on grade depends on various factors (the intensity of the construction of a stage, the complexity of the geological conditions.
In addition to surface marks (on a foundation or ground), in the process of geodetic monitoring the implementation of the deep frames is provided. Their difference from the surface grades lies in that that they are set at different depths in the range of the compressible stratum. In addition to monitoring the overall precipitation on the surface, in such studies monitoring layered sediments are also carried out.
