Article
Full-text available
This article concerns the evaluation of displacement monitoring referred to the earth-filled flood embankment using surveying and radar measurement techniques. The results allow to reveal the embankment reaction to the external loads. The results of long-term geodetic monitoring clearly imply the dominance of displacements directed outside for poin...
Article
Full-text available
The article presents an example of supplementing geotechnical monitoring with geodetic observations. The experimental flood embankment built within the ISMOP project (Information Technology System of Levee Monitoring) was subjected to continuous monitoring based on built-in measuring sensors. The results of geodetic monitoring used for observation...
Article
Full-text available
The article presents the possibilities of ISMOP – IT System of Levee Monitoring. This system is able to collecting data from the reference and experimental control and measurement network. The experimental levee is build in a 1:1 scale and located in the village of Czernichow, near Cracow. The innovation is the utilization of a series of sensors mo...
Article
Full-text available
The article discusses the potential for using numerical simulation to assess the development of deformation and pore pressure changes in a levee as a result of the increase and decrease of the flood wave. The simulation made in FLAC 2D did not take into account the filter-erosion deformation associated with seepage in the levee. The simulations wer...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the test point temperature sensors, designed for the ISMOP project. The point temperature sensors allow for full realization of spatial measurement by using a distributed measurement based on MESH type topology. The designed solutions described the selection and design of all elements of the sensors. It is also described how to...
Article
Full-text available
The observational method is one of the designing methods specified in Eurocode 7. It is recommended when the subsoil behavior prediction is difficult. Geotechnical monitoring is an integral part of the observational method. It can be also used for evaluation of subsoil and/or construction conditions at every investment stage. The article presents c...

Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the two types of control and measurement networks used in the experimental levee, built as part of the ISMOP project. The first control and measurement network is based on pore pressure and temperature sensors; additionally, it contains fiber-optic technology. The second network includes design experimental sensors that were con...
Article
Full-text available
The article presents results of tests of shear strength for 215 samples collected from formations including zones of landslide hazards in the ground of "Turow" and "Belchatow" brown coal mine. The relationships between the geological structure of the overlay, genesis, geological-engineering properties, and factors influencing formation of landslide...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of this article is to describe and characterize the properties of the overburden overlying rocks of “Józefka” mine, with an attempt to demonstrate a dependence of diversified mineral composition on geotechnical characteristics of the tested material. The article presents previously obtained unpublished data necessary for the evaluation of t...
Article
Full-text available
Analysis based on the settlement rate testing is a promising interpretation tool which enables obtaining basic consolidation parameters, particularly the consolidation coefficient c v and displacement at the end of primary consolidation δ EOP. Among the many factors which interfere with the filtration process of consolidation, the most important ar...
Article
Full-text available
The article presents the results of research of the activated landslide in Radziszów in 2010. The study focused on the evaluation of engineering geology conditions, preceded by geophysical surveys. It mainly focused on the GPR method using the IDS georadar equipped with antennas in the frequency range of 100 MHz. Antenna selection was based on arch...
Article
Full-text available
DC resistivity methods, soundings and Electrical Resistivity Tomography, were applied to study shallow geology in the place of planned construction of an experimental flood bank. The geoelectrical surveys provided quantitative information about the spatial presence of the various geoelectrical/geological layers: alluvial soils, sands, gravels and c...
Article
Full-text available
Computer measuring systems based on a net a of sensors, which register selected physical parameters, could be employed to support the flood hazard management. Such systems were developed as a part of scientific projects in Denmark (IJkDijk/Macrostability) and Holland (IJkDijk Piping). The Computer System for Monitoring Levees (ISMOP) is now being c...
Article
Full-text available
This work is only a preliminary study on the evaluation of geological engineering properties of loess area of Kraków. It has been expanded to include field tests (CPTU, DMT), which is an alternative to expensive and time-consuming laboratory tests. The field tests allow enough detail to track the variability of physical and mechanical properties of...
