Instructor-led Training (ILT)
TRAINING LEVEL: Intermediate
CLASS SIZE: Minimum: 20 Maximum: 30
The course is designed to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to plan, select, and implement instrumentation programs in geotechnical features for construction monitoring and performance verification. The course will discuss measurement tools, including recommendations for a systematic and complete approach to planning monitoring programs. The course presents recommendations for selecting proper instrumentation for various types of construction. Tasks covered include calibration, maintenance and installation of instrumentation, collection of data, processing and presentation of collected data, interpretation of processed data, and reporting of results.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
Recognize effective uses of geotechnical instrumentation in transportation projects
Identify benefits of instrumentation
Identify typical instrumentation programs for common transportation structures
Recognize role of instrumentation and how it is used for answering key geotechnical questions
Identify available instruments and where to find additional information and assistance
Plan an instrumentation program in a systematic way
Examine practical methods to collect and use data from instrumentation
Perform an evaluation of the need for and potential benefits of geotechnical instrumentation on a project
The target audience is bridge, geotechnical, or transportation engineers with 0 to 20 years of experience and responsible for the planning, design, and implementation of instrumentation programs for geotechnical construction on surface transportation facilities.
