A broad cross-section of papers from the 6th Internation Symposium FMGM in Oslo September 2003 detailing the latest developments in geomechanical field measurement technology and methods. Taking in a wide range of real-world applications from tunnels to off-shore structures, these papers look at both theoretical and practical aspects of the subject and assess performances in the field, providing a wealth of knowledge for professionals and researchers interested in field measurements, soil and granular mechanics, engineering, geology or construction.
