Dutch term or phrase: zettingsbout
Het betreft een verslag over het controleren of er schade heeft plaatsgevonden aan een kademuur als gevolg van het laden van een aantal zware installaties.

"Om eventuele afwijkingen die tijdens het aan boord nemen van de ***, aan de kadewand ontstaan, zijn er voorafgaand aan de hijswerkzaamheden een aantal zettingsboutjes in de kade aangebracht, welke vervolgens ingemeten zijn met een tachymeter." De zin mist volgens mij een werkwoord en zou als volgt moeten lopen.
"Om eventuele afwijkingen te kunnen monitoren/waarnemen die tijdens het aan boord nemen van de *** aan de kadewand zijn ontstaan, zijn er voorafgaand aan de hijswerkzaamheden een aantal zettingsboutjes in de kade aangebracht, welke vervolgens ingemeten zijn met een tachymeter."

Ik weet waar de bouten voor dienen en wet ook hoe ze er uitzien (http://www.boels-geosafety.com/webshop_catalogdetails.asp?ar... maar kan geen vertaling vinden. Ik kom zelf niet verder dan het algemene 'measurement bolt', maar vraag me toch of er geen meer specifieke term is. 'Consolidation bolt', 'settling bolt' and 'subsidence bolt' leveren ook niets op.

P.S. One of the technical meanings of the word "zetting" is subsidence, according to Kluwer's Universeel Technisch Woordenboek.

I think it would be useful to clarify the meaning of the word subsidence in English. The word means sinking lower in the ground or water, and a synonym is settling. A subsidence monitoring bolt would be a bolt used for the purpose of monitoring subsidence or sinking of a building lower into the ground or water.
