Technology Platform 2: Development of field testing and monitoring capabilities
The aim of Technology Platform 2 is to provide a basis for the efficient implementation of field-based research projects, the development of standardised method statements and software, and effective training of researchers. This Technology Platform has two main thrust areas, Field Testing and Monitoring, and these have a structural and geotechnical engineering focus. It has built on New Zealand leadership in field testing and monitoring to further the development of capabilities in these areas. Experimental field testing and monitoring equipment at several QuakeCoRE institutions is currently being utilised by researchers for multi-institutional research, and strong partnerships with stakeholders means that the New Zealand environment provides researchers with access to infrastructure at a level that is not available internationally. This presentation will provide an overview of the development of capabilities and the research activities that have been enabled through QuakeCoRE’s Technology Platform 2. These developments will be linked to applications across a range of QuakeCoRE projects, including post-Kaikōura earthquake reconnaissance and research activities.
