Study on Application of Time Domain Reflectometry to Highway Slope Monitoring
To apply Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) in slope monitoring, on the base of brief summary of principle of TDR, and with types of indoor shear tests and situ construction of different cables, reflection waves of types of different cables are studied. Compared with the monitor results by TDR and oblique monitoring result by drilling hole, the following conclusions can be gained, i.e. TDR can be fast applied in determining the sliding plane, more economical, safety, and precisely. By the research results, to satisfy different monitoring goal, the application rules of types of TDR is put forward , and TDR is a very useful tool for slope survey.
