Beyond the Water’s Edge: Geotechnics in the Wet
Gaining insight into the subsurface and developing an understanding of what’s hidden below ground is a key to the design and construction process. Geotechnical engineers and geologists often develop their...

Creating Art AND Reducing Project Risk WITH 3D Modeling: Digital Insights Unearth Hidden Landscapes
Humans have always lived in threedimensional space, with senses that evolved for a 3D environment. So, it’s perfectly natural that people can more quickly, easily, and fully understand something when it’s...

Eyes in the Heavens: Satellite Technologies in Remote Site Monitoring
Installation and maintenance of instrumentation to monitor geotechnical projects in remote locales is usually more challenging than sites in urban areas for both technical and logistical reasons. In most...

Geotechnical Instrumentation for Roadways: Shifting from Manual to Automated
Geotechnical instruments, including inclinometers, piezometers, settlement plates, etc., have long been used during and after construction to monitor performance of transportation infrastructure, including...

Instrumentation and Monitoring
A detailed plan for monitoring possible ground surface movements caused by the microtunneling operations should be prepared. The plan is typically prepared by the engineer in consultation...

Evaluation of Hail Suppression Efforts
The rationale for conducting project evaluations is to find out how successful the operations are in achieving the desired results. This assessment is more easily said than done. It is...
