On 21st June 2023, the AGS held a webinar entitled Instrumentation and Monitoring: How Not to Get it Wrong which was chaired by Daniele Fornelli (AGS Instrumentation and Monitoring Working Group Leader and Associate Technical Director at Geotechnical Observations). Daniele also presented alongside Tim Clegg (Managing Director, Geosense).
The webinar was split into two parts. The first part looked at Instrumentation and Monitoring in Geotechnical Engineering: From Principles to Concept and provided an introduction to Instrumentation and Monitoring (I&M) for Geotechnical Engineering, and to the importance of field monitoring data reliability. The presentation also discussed the main features for the definition of an effective I&M scope.
The second part of the webinar focused on Instrumentation and Monitoring in Geotechnical Engineering: The Importance of Details, highlighting I&M schemes, used to illustrate some of the challenges associated with the choice, the installation and the data acquisition procedures of typical monitoring instruments used in Geotechnical Engineering projects.
Thank you to Geosense and Terra Insights for sponsoring the webinar.
