We are the International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII), a non-profit organization of leading structural health monitoring institutions and individuals with a global representation from the applied and theoretical arenas. We range from practitioners, engineers working in the field and in academia, to infrastructure managers as well as students. ISHMII enhances our connectivity and information exchange, and increases the awareness of the structural health monitoring disciplines and tools among end users. Members benefits include: exclusive access to the Journal of Civil Structural Health Monitoring (JSCHM), special events, information on upcoming meetings, discounted registration fees, career opportunities, case studies, and thesis and dissertation abstracts, which are found in the Knowledge & Education Center and exclusive access to our newsletter “The Monitor”, our quarterly e-magazine.
Field Monitoring in Geomechanics deals with assessing the performance of engineering structures using instrumentation and other related information. The applications include dams and embankments, structures and foundations, transport infrastructure including tunnels and other underground openings, open cut and underground mines, natural slopes, land reclamation, repositories for industrial or nuclear waste and offshore structures.
The principal aims of TC220 are:
– To organise specialty conferences, symposiums, workshops and short courses dedicated to the subject of field monitoring in geomechanics. To encourage the involvement of a wide range of geo-professionals in these events.
– To encourage the preparation of keynote lectures, state-of-the-art lectures including on new technologies, general reports for conferences organised by the International Society, regional conferences and conferences organized by Member Societies.
– To promote the inclusion of structural and geotechnical monitoring in universities and at conferences and meetings of other international bodies, thereby encouraging a common culture of learning through field monitoring.
TC220 will provide fora for all of those involved in the use of field instrumentation, such as manufacturers, installers, design consultants and owner/operators, to improve collective knowledge, support decision making and foster a common culture. This will be done mainly through FMGM Symposia and the website, but also by encouraging universities to include monitoring in curricula and by increasing field monitoring content at conferences and meetings of other international bodies.
FMGM is an international symposium held every four years since 1977. TC220 will ensure that this tradition continues and will encourage ISSMGE members to participate in future FMGM Symposia.
GEAM stands for “GEorisorse e AMbiente” (georesources and environment): it is a non-profit cultural association founded at Politecnico di Torino in 1964 as “Associazione Mineraria Subalpina” and ever since hosted inside the Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering (DIATI) of the Politecnico. GEAM initiatives target the geoenvironmental and mining engineering field, with particular focus to the interaction and compatibility between fluid, solid and land resources and man-driven activities such as exploitation, excavation and construction.
The Association, which counts about 250 associates, is active on the whole italian territory and entertains relationships and partnerships with affine entities in Italy and abroad.
