Geotechnical asset management for Italian transport agencies: implementation principles and concepts

Geotechnical Asset Management (GAM) is a key action for the improvement of the condition, utility, safety and life cycle cost of a transportation network in complex geological and geomorphological countries' environments like Italy and United States. GAM plans aim at offering guidance in supporting decision-makers to preserve their transportation systems. Systematic monitoring of geotechnical assets by innovative technologies may efficiently support GAM plans.
Our CEO, Paolo Mazzanti, is going to present his speech about "Geotechnical Asset Management for Italian Transport Agencies: implementation Principles and Concepts", at the International Congress on Transport Infrastructure and Systems (TIS Roma 2017) that will take place in Rome, Italy, between 10th and 12th of April. This challenging work has been carried out with the support of David Stanley, Paul Thompson and Darren Beckstrand from United States.

NHAZCA at the 4th WLF 2017 (World Landslide Forum)

NHAZCA S.r.l. is sponsoring the 4th World Landslide Forum (Ljubljana, Slovenia, May 29 - June 2, 2017), one of the main international meeting about landslides. Come to visit us at our booth and learn the most innovative solutions for landslide hazard assessment and monitoring.

During the event, NHAZCA's staff will deliver two speeches, regarding the research activities carried out on two large landslides recently occurred in Italy: Montescaglioso Landslide (3rd December, 2013) and Poggio Baldi Landslide (19th March, 2010).

Montescaglioso Landslide has been investigated by two of the most innovative remote sensing techniques: DIC (Digital Image Correlation) analysis based on satellite SAR images, to infer the co-failure displacement pattern and A-DInSAR (Advanced Differential Interferometric SAR) analysis, to detect the spatial-temporal deformational pattern before and after the failure.

Poggio Baldi Landslide, re-activated on March 19, 2010, has been strongly investigated using different remote sensing techniques, such as: Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), Global Positioning System (GPS), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) Photogrammetry, Digital Image Correlation (DIC), Terrestrial Interferometric SAR (TInSAR). More details about the Poggio Baldi Landslide have been described in the February Newsletter.
