About the Speaker
Gernot Jedlitschka graduated in civil engineering from the Technical University Graz, Austria in 1997. Since then he has been working with Geoconsult ZT GmbH, Salzburg, Austria in the Design and Construction of Underground Structures. From 2000 to 2005 he worked for Geoconsult Asia Singapore specialising in suburban soft ground tunnelling (TBM and NATM). He has been a managing director of Geoconsult ZT GmbH, Salzburg since 2014. Reference Projects are the CERN LHC Project, Bolu Tunnel in Turkey, Deep Tunnel Sewer Contract T03 and T06 in Singapore, Circle Line Contracts C822 and C825 in Singapore, Pantai Trunk Sewer in Kula Lumpur, the Brenner Railway Link Kundl - Radfeld – Baumkirchen and the Brenner Base tunnel, Austria, the Lowering of Stadtbahntunnel Karlsruhe, Germany and the Rehabilitation of the “Old Kaiser Wilhelm Tunnel”, Germany
About the ITA Training Course
Monitoring and Control in Tunneling
This training provides the purpose, methods, and examples of “monitoring” the effects of tunnelling, including the monitoring of tunnel machine performance, to control tunnelling to achieve acceptable excavation performance with stable underground structures, and prevent damage to existing structures and utilities. Due to the great variability in ground conditions, monitoring has an essential role in tunnelling regardless of method of excavation.
It is the only effective means to allow the tunnel design and construction procedures to be adjusted and validated as tunnelling takes place. Topics include instrumentation (equipment and typical applications), interpretation of monitoring data, role of monitoring in risk management, contractual aspects, and case histories. The course is of interest for owners, designers and construction engineers, supervisors, and managers.
