A new approach for characterizing soils based on electric parameters (2018–2020)

The aim of the project is the development of an electromagnetic technic for concept for hydraulic and mechanical parameters estimation of geo-materials. These parameters of rocks and soils govern the behavior and influence the safety of man-made and natural geo-structures. Conventional monitoring methods are limited, reducing our capability of detecting threats to these structures. The project aims to take advantages of the frequency dependent electromagnetic parameters of geo-materials to develop sensors and associated analysis concepts. The outcomes of the project will improve protection of major geo-structures, trigger novel applications in civil engineering and foster the development of patentable sensors and analysis concepts.
