The department of Geospatial and Space Technology, Bsc Geospatial Engineering students participated in the Kibwezi field work exercise which is a madatory unit before graduating.
Deformation monitoring is the systematic and comprehensive measurement and tracking of the alteration in the shape and the dimensions of a civil engineering structure such as a bridge, dam and/or building; for this case Athi River Bridge deformation which may be induced by applied loads of vehicles on transit and pedestrian use of the bridge. Such monitoring is important since data acquired can aid in further computation, deformation analysis and predictive maintenance by the relevant authorities. Athi-river bridge and the Galana River below serves as the borders of Makueni county and Kitui county.
