Pore pressure variability and control is one of the most significant aspects of Geotechnical Engineering practice related to slope stability, underground openings, foundation of heavy structures, and water retention facilities. Pore pressure effects are most often controlled by natural small-scale hydrogeologic details. Characterization and management of pore pressures requires closely-arrayed repeated measurements to determine the effects of these details for design of appropriate mitigation measures, for...
The management of a geotechnical project requires a wide range of important information coming from the sensors, which are of vital importance for correct execution of construction plans and to refine soil models.
Humans have built dams for thousands of years. Once water collects behind a dam, however, the dam presents potential risks that require care to minimize. Some dams and levees are ill-maintained or aging, and they can be very remote.
Subsurface investigations prior to reconnaissance and pre construction stages are often met with difficult site conditions particularly over rivers and water bodies. Due to site constraints, geo-technical methods are not suitable in such cases. Therefore
The control of a dam requires a wide range of important information coming from the sensors, which are of vital importance for the life of a dam. Engineers in charge can take specific and sudden decisions for a correct control of a dam`s reservoir, body and foundations. However, monitoring is not only carried out by sensors, but it also involves direct or remote visual inspection as well as topographical measuring.
Manage information from many different sources when managing data collected at Dams, Levees and other impoundments. Only with the help of specialized software from KISTERS is it possible to compile the key data in such a way that a reliable decision tool is available at all times.
EVS, MVS, and EnterVol excel in their ability to handle analysis and visualization of geophysical data. For example, 3D resistivity can be analyzed from 2D ground arrays and airborne surveys. Electrical resistivity surveys offer the ability to inexpensively collect vast quantities of three-dimensional subsurface data. Environmental sciences, mining, archaeology and many other disciplines can benefit from these measurement techniques. However, their large irregular datasets offer significant challenges related to...
