This paper describes a novel wireless data acquisition system that was developed for a study into the behaviour of rotary-jacked piles. Rotary-jacking is a pile installation technique that has evolved from axial jacking. By rotating the pile, the penetration resistance is reduced due to the changing direction and magnitude of the base and shaft resistance. A series of instrumented model pile tests were conducted at the University of Western Australia (UWA) to quantify the performance of rotary-jacked piles. A significant challenge associated with this modelling was the need to gather instrument data from the rotating pile. A miniature wireless data acquisition system was developed for this purpose and is described in this paper. The system is approximately 90 mm × 40 mm × 40 mm in size, and provides logging, conditioning and transmission of up to 8 channels of data. It was designed and built at UWA.

Abstract

This paper describes a novel wireless data acquisition system that was developed for a study into the behaviour of rotary-jacked piles. Rotary-jacking is a pile installation technique that has evolved from axial jacking. By rotating the pile, the penetration resistance is reduced due to the changing direction and magnitude of the base and shaft resistance. A series of instrumented model pile tests were conducted at the University of Western Australia (UWA) to quantify the performance of rotary-jacked piles. A significant challenge associated with this modelling was the need to gather instrument data from the rotating pile. A miniature wireless data acquisition system was developed for this purpose and is described in this paper. The system is approximately 90 mm × 40 mm × 40 mm in size, and provides logging, conditioning and transmission of up to 8 channels of data. It was designed and built at UWA.
