|WORKSHOP #2 – Practical aspects of field instrumentation
9h00 – 12h00.
The role of field performance measurements in risk assessment, control of natural geohazards and in the design, construction and operation of engineered facilities, has become a fundamental issue in today’s engineering practice, reinforcing the need for well implemented monitoring programs. In an attempt to address this growing need, the organizers of FMGM 2018 are holding a ½ day workshop on July 15th, the day before the symposium, for those interested in learning more about the practical aspects related to field instrumentation.
The workshop will focus on things to consider when:
- Planning an instrumentation program (Andrea Zattoni, CESI, Italy)
- Selecting, installing and troubleshooting
Piezometers (Andrew Ridley, Geo-Observations Ltd., UK)
Pressure cells (Giorgio Pezzetti, SMAK s.a.s., Italy)
Extensometers (Daniel Naterop, Sisgeo, Switzerland)
Inclinometers (Erik Mikkelsen, GeoMetron, USA)
- Designing automatic data acquisition systems (Brent Randall, Campbell Scientific Inc., USA)
- Analyzing data (including sources of error) (Allen Marr, Geocomp, USA)
- Integrating classical geotechnical measurements with remote sense techniques (Paolo Mazzanti, NHAZCA, Italy)
The workshop will be presented by a team of recognized instrumentation specialists from around the world. It is designed to appeal to those wishing to increase their knowledge with respect to the practical aspects to be considered when designing and implementing optimal geotechnical instrumentation programs of any kind and magnitude.
