First International FIG Workshop on Monitoring High Rise and Tall Engineering Structures Development and Practices

22-23 November 2012,  The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong,

The construction of iconic towers, such as the 828 meters high Burj Khalifa (formerly Burj Dubai) officially inaugurated on 4th January 2010, imposes many challenges to surveyors.

The First International FIG Workshop on High Rise and Tall Engineering Structures, organised jointly by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics (LSGI), the FIG Commission 6 ?Engineering Surveys?, WG 6.2 ?Engineering Surveys for Construction work and Structural Engineering?, and the University of Nottingham Ningbo China reviewed the current state of the art with the contribution of international experts in structural monitoring high rise and tall engineering structures during the construction and also after when structural health monitoring solutions have to be considered due to maintenance and contractor?s responsibilities and especially under wind and seismic loads.

Goals and Achievements of FIG Working group WG6.1 - Deformation Measurements and Analysis

Adam Chrzanowski, Xiaoli Ding, Gethin Roberts and Cecilia Whitaker have prepared a document on the activities of FIG Working Group 6.1 on Deformation Measurements which dates back to 1975 when the first FIG international symposium on deformation measurements was held in Krakow, Poland. The main goals of WG 6.1 are: dissemination of knowledge on new developments in deformation monitoring and analysis and stimulation of international co-operation in solving specific (ad hoc) problems related to deformation measurements. The dissemination of knowledge is achieved by organising international symposia and technical sessions at FIG Congresses related to deformation measurements. Since 1975, WG6.1 has organised eleven international symposia in Poland, Germany, Hungary, Canada, Hong Kong, USA, and Greece.


FIG Working Week and 125th Anniversary - Paris 13-17 April 2003

The 2nd International Conference on Engineering Surveying – INGEO 2002

The 2nd International Conference of Engineering Surveying INGEO 2002 was held in November 11–13, 2002 in the Congress Centrum of Slovak Savings Bank in Bratislava. The conference was organised by the Department of Surveying (DS) of the Faculty of Civil Engineering (FCE) of the Slovak University of Technology (SUT) in Bratislava under the auspices of the Dean of the FCE SUT Bratislava, Prof. Dušan Petráš, PhD.

The co-operation bodies of the conference were:

  • FIG Commission 6 WG 6.2 – Engineering Surveys for Industry and Research
  • Chamber of Surveyors and Cartographers
  • Slovak Union of Surveyors.

Specialists from the 9 various countries in the world, who work at universities, research centres, in geodetic and building organizations as well as in industry, have participated in proceedings. Total number of participants was 76, out of which 36 participants were from foreign countries and 40 participants from Slovak Republic.

Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference of Engineering Surveying was aimed at a discussion about actual problems of engineering surveying, about conclusion of knowledge and results, which were acquired by the using of new modern technologies.

The individual sessions of proceedings were following:

  • Session 1: Model Building and Data Processing
  • Session 2: Deformation Measurement
  • Session 3: Photogrammetry Applications
  • Session 4: Sensors and Laser Equipments

Twenty-nine papers were presented during the conference. Papers were top up with the various contributions during discussion by many participants. The conference languages were English, Slovak and Czech. Discussion was ensured with the simultaneous translation. A proceeding from this conference was issued in English language in Edition of SUT Bratislava. There was also published a CD ROM where you can find the complete proceeding and also some more information about the Department of Surveying, which organised this conference. Content of the CD ROM and so the complete Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference of Engineering Surveying you can find on
http://www.svf.stuba.sk/kat/GDE/INGEO2002/Start.html.

Program of the conference was completed by an exhibition of measuring and computer techniques and software products developed for engineering surveying activities, monitoring of building structures and automated measuring systems. Main motive of the exhibition was emphasized by the participation of the laser terrestrial scanners (LTS) from Geotech Company Bratislava with the cooperation of Gefos Company Prague and Riegl Horn Company Austria. LTS was possible to see for the first time in Slovakia. LTS Cyrax (Leica) and LMS-Z360 (Riegl) belong to the best one in the world.

Organizing Committee prepared two daylong excursions:

  • Excursion to the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava,
  • Excursion to the Gabčíkovo Hydro Electric Power Station (HEPS).

Participants of the excursion to the FCE SUT Bratislava were welcomed by prof. Dušan Petráš, PhD. – Dean of the Faculty, who described a historical development of FCE SUT Bratislava, its nowadays structure and actual problems. During the visiting of the departments, which ensure education of students in Geodesy and Cartography, the participants were familiar with a structure of the student programs, research and expertise activity of the each department.

The aim of the excursion to the Gabčíkovo HEPS was to present, especially to the foreign participants, a complex of the hydro-technique structures with the emphasis to the engineering-geodetic works realized in the past and also during present days. The participants’ interest was aimed at the automated measured systems realizing monitoring of the selected structures of the Gabčíkovo HEPS. One part of the excursion was also the presentation of activities of the Department of Surveying of FCE SUT Bratislava on the Gabčíkovo HEPS. The participants of this excursion were allowed to look over some students’ works, which present the results from every year practical exercises (Engineering Surveying Campus) of the 5th class students in Gabčíkovo HEPS.

Chairmen of the individual sessions defined conclusions and recommendations of the international conference INGEO 2002:

  • in the area of the Model Building and Data Processing there will be often more used a Theory of the Robust Estimations,
  • new processes of the refraction coefficient determination presented on the conference can evoke a development of the instruments with the automated correction of the refraction in a measurement process,
  • CCD sensors and the technologies working on a CCD base became a main technologies also in engineering surveying, in the future it is expecting the strong influence of these technologies on the measurement systems development,
  • the most productive technology for data acquisition in surveying will be LTS together with aerial scanners, their exploitation enable to create a spatial (3D) information systems (including 3D Cadastre),
  • exploitation of the roboting measurement stations (RMS) in an area of cinematic applications (e.g. dynamic loading of the construction) needs to determine the new characteristics for RMS, this is possible to determine e.g. with help of the dynamic tests presented on the conference.
