Getting the Angle on Inclinometers: An Instrumentation Short Course

CalGeo is kicking off a short and sweet 2-part course on Instrumentation starting Thursday November 5th. The second session will be held the following week on Thursday November 12th.

Lead by Geokon's Geotechnical Service Engineer, Rob Clark, this series will focus on Inclinometers.

November 5th, Inclinometers 101: Installation and Monitoring Techniques

This webinar provides a summary of the inclinometer monitoring system and will include a discussion of inclinometer components, suggested methods for installation of the inclinometer casings, and suggested methods for performing manual measurements with inclinometers.  The material is intended to provide a basic overview of the instrument and help guide the user in getting the most value out of a properly selected and installed inclinometer system.  Subsequent webinars will delve deeper into the plotting and evaluation of the data associated with the inclinometer.

November 12th, Inclinometers 201: Data Evaluation & Case Histories

This webinar provides a continued discussion of the use of the inclinometer system.  In the first half of this discussion, inclinometer data evaluation and plotting examples will be shared, along with identifying and dealing with common errors that can develop with the inclinometer systems.  The second half of this webinar will be a presentation of case histories with examples of some good inclinometer experiences and some not so much.
