Introduction of a Latest-Model Ground Water Flow Meter and Its Application in Ho Chi Minh City

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering book series (LNCE, volume 62)


Ground water plays an important role for civil works and underground environment. Ground Water Flow Meter (hereafter GWF Meter) has been developed for a-single-borehole with 75 mm diameter in 1990’s. For meeting requests from the users, GWF Meter is newly updated by changing used materials around the sensor part of the GWF meter and accessories and downsizing the main probe. And trial measurement was performed in Ho Chi Minh City to verify its applicability.
