Geotechnical monitoring

Interferometry is a technique that can be applied to SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) images that allow obtaining Digital Elevation Models, displacement measurements and assistance for monitoring large areas and/or engineering constructions. The objective of this paper is to present aspects related to the technique of Interferometry SAR (InSAR) applied to...

Early Warning Systems (EWS) are non-structural measures for landslides disaster prevention. They are based on the detection of impending failure signals. The results of a landslide simulation experiment where accelerometers were used to identify pre-failure signals are presented in this paper. Landslide was simulated in a tilting flume filled with sandy...

This research aims to describe how rainfall can cause changes in the piezometric pore pressure and soil matric suction in a densely instrumented slope by the South BR-101 (Brazilian Numbered Highway), in the area of Morro do Boi, in the State of Santa Catarina, South Region of Brazil. The slope presented a history of instability movements instigated by ...
