6th International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring


The 6th International course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring, organized by Paolo Mazzanti, John Dunnicliff and the staff of NHAZCA, will be held in Rome from May 27 to 31, 2019. Over the years the course has become an annual meeting able to gather hundreds of people from the Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring worldwide community. The five past editions registered more than 550 participants from 53 countries.

The first two days of the event (May 27-28) are devoted to the Master Classes, eight short courses on the major monitoring techniques (Extensometers, Inclinometers, Piezometers, Vibration Monitoring, Total station, Terrestrial and satellite RADAR, Optic fibers, Data acquisition and management tools). Each one of the two-hours long classes can be followed separately.

A Field Trip in the Roman Forum is scheduled on May 29, it includes the visit to the monitoring systems installed on the archaeological structures and live instruments demonstrations performed by exhibitors (manufacturers and expert technicians).

On May 30 and 31 will be held the Main Course that will cover the aspects of basic concepts review, New Trends and Case History in geotechnical and structural monitoring. Furthermore all the participants can give their own contribution by sending an abstract and preparing a presentation on the most significant professional experiences.
