The Institute of Geomechanics and Geotechnics at the Technical University of Braunschweig (IGG-TUBS), formerly the Institute of Foundation Engineering and Soil Mechanics, has been organizing the specialist seminar "Messen in der Geotechnik" every two years since 1994. The seminar offers experts from industry, authorities, research institutes, and engineering offices a forum for exchange. Measurements are carried out on structures both during the construction process and after completion in order to check the load-bearing behavior and load transfer assumptions. The observation method is described in standards as a procedure during the construction phase, while continuous monitoring systems are increasingly being used for monitoring structures after completion. The specialist seminar "Messen in der Geotechnik 2024" will cover the current state of measurement technology and new developments in geotechnics.
DMT will present geotechnical monitoring services such as the IoT monitoring platform DMT SAFEGUARD, which monitors and analyzes projects.
