The course provides you with a systematic planning of monitoring programs, including many practical cases. Topics are: monitoring tunnels, up-to-date methods for automatic acquisition of data and also presentations about risk analyses and geotechnical baseline reporting.
This is a three day course for practitioners, taught by practitioners. The emphasis is on why and how. The accent will be on instrumentation for monitoring performance during construction and operation rather than instrumentation to determine in situ parameters. The fourth day of the course (29 November) is an optional day. In the morning we will start with a discussion session on topics selected by the participants. In the afternoon we will visit the North/South Metro Line monitoring project in Amsterdam.
This is unique: a continuing education course that includes technical presentations by major manufacturers of geotechnical instrumentation in the USA and Europe, in addition to presentations by users from England, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
The course was set up by GeoDelft in close cooperation with John Dunnicliff, a geotechnical instrumentation consultant with over 40 years of experience in this field.
All presentations and discussions will be in English. For more information, the course schedule and the list of instructors, visit our website:

Engineers, geologists and technicians who are involved in performance monitoring of geotechnical features during construction and operating phases.
Project managers and other decision makers who are concerned with safety, risk management or performance of geotechnical constructions and consequential behaviour.
