Geotechnical Instrumentation for Engineers

Event code: 73064

A good geotechnical monitoring instrumentation system with proper protection, recording and data analysis could avoid catastrophic site incident. These instrumentations play an important role in the safety monitoring especially during the construction stage. The recorded data are also useful for design verification. Therefore, it is of foremost importance that engineers should be equipped with the knowledge on the different functions of geotechnical instrumentations, their installation method and how the readings are taken so that they could better plan and design the system to get their desired data. This course will cover this essential knowledge and also the skill to interpret the readings obtained, the good practices in installation of the instruments and the statutory requirements.


• Introduction to geotechnical instrumentations
• Purpose, installation and monitoring of geotechnical instruments
• Web-based tunneling and excavation monitoring system
• Good practices in instrument installation, monitoring and protection
• Planning and designing instrumentation monitoring programmes
• Statutory requirements on instrumentation & monitoring
• Monitoring data, interpretation of instruments readings, review levels & action plan
