Two day workshop bringing together industry and academia at CERN to discuss ideas on two themes:
A group visit to the construction works at Point 1 for the High Luminosity LHC (HiLumi) project.
PPE can be provided, but if you have your own boots (or any other PPE), this will be really helpful.
Update on the progress and future plans of the civil engineering design of the 100km long FCC accelerator
An overview of the development of digital tools and strategies which have made advancements in alignment optimisation and site selection across major tunnelling projects around the world, at the planning and feasibility stage.
This presentation will discuss the contributions that automation in detailed design can make in developing options for tunnel alignments ensuring that constraints are satisfied whilst also maximising aspirations such as keeping the projected construction cost as low as possible. The presentation will demonstrate the automated design technology and how tunnel sections can automatically be checkedy. Automation of settlement damage assessments will also be demonstrated.
The latest in modern technology in combination with innovative software ensures has opened new venues of contract (claims) management. Amberg is presenting the case of the Monte Ceneri on how this saved 14 million CHF to owner. This includes how the models can be combined on a single platform in the Case of the 3dExperience platform by Dassault systems, notably in alignment optimisation with respect to geological conditions.
Introduction Tunnel Asset Management strategy at CERN, including technologies developed to improve the way we inspect and monitor the tunnels
Overview of several different technologies under development including computer vision, thermal imaging and machine learning to allow remote and automated inspections of underground structures
Atkins has been actively testing and developing state of the art AI technology in tunnels and other infrastructure maintenance, including machine learning, drone inspections and AI objection recognition
This presentation will briefly introduce two case studies of fibre optic strain monitoring in underground infrastructures: 1) monitoring of retaining wall structure performance due to deep excavation in London Paddington Station; 2) monitoring and analysis of long-term tunnel behaviour at CERN.
Tunnel Information Management (TIM), an in-house product developed by London Bridge Associates (LBA) has been driving improvements in managing tunnel asset data since 2001. However, never content with standing still, we are now developing TIM for Tasking (TFT), an assets and actions database.
Cosmic rays are a natural background radiation produced in collisions by primary particles from space with the Earth's upper atmosphere. Cosmic ray muons are highly penetrating, typically able to pass through many metres of rock, and are well suited to imaging the interior of thick man-made or natural structures. Recently we have performed the first field trial of a portable cosmic ray tracking system developed to provide radiographic measurements of the overburden of UK railway tunnels. In this talk we will report on this initial field trial, before discussing recent developments made to study density anomalies at a higher resolution, and over longer timescales.
An overview of the development of digital tools and strategies which have made advancements in smart monitoring, machine learning and operational performance across major tunnelling projects across the world, at the operations and monitoring stage.
The latest in modern technology in combination with innovative software ensures a high efficient and objective inspection and monitoring of tunnel infrastructure. Amberg is presenting workflows for 3D reality capture using multi sensor platforms, data analyses with Artificial Intelligence and real-time monitoring to get all relevant information around the clock. A Digital Twin of the facilities and the use of connected cloud-based solution will help to manage and maintain tunnels in a smart way.
