Presentation of EarlyDike at BMBF’s kick-off seminar “Early warning systems” by Verena Krebs

26.10.2015

Within the Geotechnologies Special Programme the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the German Research Foundation (DFG) defined 13 priority topics which are used to address the basic geoscientific issues of the future. EarlyDike is part of the thematic priority area “Early warning systems”. Within the same priority area there are five other projects developing methods for the early detection of natural hazards in Germany using innovative sensor and information technology. Mid-October 2015, all researchers involved in one of the projects got to know each other in Hannover. The meeting’s aim was to become acquainted with the other projects and to identify potential for comprehensive collaboration. Professor Schüttrumpf’s slides presenting EarlyDike can be found here.

First model test at IWW by Verena Krebs

26.10.2015

Preliminary small-scale physical model test for the installation of the intelligent geotextiles have taken place at the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resource Management (IWW). In a raised model dike with a homogenous sand mass, prototype sensors were tested for the detection of water inside the dike. After the functionality of the measuring principle could be shown, now the optimization of the interface between the sensor and the measuring device as well as further sensors for the detection of deformations is worked on.

Kick-off-Meeting in Aachen by Verena Krebs

19.06.2015

In early July the team gathers in Aachen for the first project meeting. All partners introduce their institutes and present their respective tasks within the project. Furthermore, project milestones are set and schedules established. A guided tour of the hydraulics laboratory of the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management (IWW) gives practical insights into the experimental work in water engineering. The following barbecue allows for more personal interaction. Now that all project partners know each other better, we´re looking forward to productive work and great project outcome.
