Geotechnical monitoring is a fundamental component of landslide investigations and the design of open pit and engineered slopes. Its purpose is multifold, serving both investigative and performance monitoring functions that are in part a necessity to manage geological uncertainty and part due diligence to ensure public and worker safety.

This two day workshop will provide an overview of both conventional and state-of-the-art geotechnical instrumentation and their effective use applied to slope monitoring. This will be achieved through a series of lectures led by Profs. Erik Eberhardt, P.Eng., and Doug Stead, P.Eng. Accompanying the lectures will be a series of case histories and live demonstrations of remote sensing equipment and data analysis, including ground-based LiDAR, photogrammetry, thermal imaging, and Slope Stability Radar. 

Day 1:

  • Introduction: Role of Monitoring in Slope Design.
  • Investigative Monitoring: Ground and Groundwater Characterization.
  • Investigative Monitoring: Remote Sensing I – LiDAR and Photogrammetry.
  • Case Histories: Monitoring in Support of Rock Slope Investigations.
  • Demonstration: LiDAR, Photogrammetry, and Thermal Imaging.

Day 2:

  • Slope Monitoring for Performance and Early Warning.
  • Performance Monitoring: Remote Sensing II – Radar and InSAR.
  • Slope Monitoring: New Developments.
  • Demonstration: Slope Monitoring Instrumentation.
  • Case Histories: Monitoring in Support of Rock Slope Performance and Early Warning.
  • Case Histories: Calibration and Constraint of Stability Analyses using Monitoring Data.

Instructors

Dr. Erik Eberhardt, P.Eng.
Professor, Director Geological Engineering, University of British Columbia

Erik is a Professor of Rock Engineering and Director of the Geological Engineering program at the University of British Columbia. His work is focussed on the advancement and integration of geological and geotechnical field measurements in conjunction with state-of-the-art numerical modelling techniques to better understand complex rock engineering problems. He has published over 160 technical papers, consults on international projects across North and South America, Europe, and Asia, and was the 2013 recipient of the CGS's John A. Franklin Award for outstanding technical contributions to rock mechanics and rock engineering.
 

Dr. Doug Stead, P.Eng., FEIC, C.Eng.
Professor, FRBC Chair (Resource Geoscience and Geotechnics), Simon Fraser University

Doug is Professor and FRBC Chair in Resource Geoscience and Getechnics at Simon Fraser University. His work emphasizes the applications of engineering geology and geotechnical engineering in the resource sector and natural hazards. Current research involves the development of digital terrain mapping techniques and their incorporation into slope stability assessment. The factors controlling slope failure, the mechanisms involved, and characterization of elements at risk are all important components of the research program. Doug has published over 200 technical papers and is recipient of the Canadian Geotechnical Society’s Thomas Roy Engineering Geology Award in 2008 and the John A. Franklin Rock Mechanics Award in 2009. Doug was elected Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, FEIC, in 2011.
