    International Day of Light May 16

    “The International Day of Light (IDL) is an annual, global initiative that provides a focal point for the continued appreciation of light. IDL aims to raise awareness of the critical role light-based technologies play in our lives, elevating science, technology, art, and culture to help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.” (SPIE)
    You can participate, for example, by entering the SPIE photographic competition

    As photonics is at the core of our business, fibrisTerre is deeply appreciative of light in all its forms.

  • Monitoring strain evolution in retaining wall

    09.05.2021

    Geotechnical monitoring of an earth retaining structure - ground movement

    Detecting ground movement and structural deformation

    Read the case study to find out how fiber optic strain and temperature sensing was deployed in a large earth retaining structure which formed part of a landfill construction.

    Conventional geodetic techniques, a total station and bi-reflex targets measured the structure’s surface displacement. Fiber optic distributed sensing provided insight into the structure’s internal strain evolution. Thanks to an extended measurement campaign, when a strain event happened five years after the work began, the alarm was raised, indicating the area of strain.

    The monitoring project integration was carried out by Engineering Geodesy and Measurement Systems, Graz University of Technology.

    fibrisTerre keynote at Workshop on Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing and geomechanics

    Where would you expect to see strain during a borehole casing installation?

    Deploying continuous sensing into a 550 m borehole gave an insight into strain and temperature development during the first year, and was the subject of fibrisTerre’s keynote at

    European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers EAGE Keynote for the Workshop on Distributed Fibre Optic Sensing and geomechanics.
