MANAGEMENT OF INSTRUMENTATION FOR MAJOR PROJECTS IN SINGAPORE
Mr Nick Osborne, Land Transport Authority
In major construction projects, excavation works pose more challenges in cases of ground with soft
soils, proximity to sensitive structures or tunnelling in variable ground conditions. Instrumentation
designs must provide ample amount of relevant data to monitor the construction work. This data
must be received rapidly and of high quality such that it can be interpreted effectively. The key
requirements will be discussed with the use of case studies from Singapore as well as overseas.
EXPERIENCE GAINED FROM MAJOR DEEP EXCAVATION & TUNNEL PROJECTS IN CCL
Dr Cai Jun Gang, Tritech Engineering & Testing (S) Pte Ltd
The Circle Line (CCL), one of LTA’s major infrastructure projects, is approximately 33 km long with
29 stations and runs through some of the busiest corridors in the city.To ensure construction safety,
instrument-based ground monitoring systems have been implemented by specialist contractors
appointed directly by LTA.This talk, delivered from an instrumentation specialist contractor’s point of
view, will share the practical experiences obtained from the CCL project.
REAL TIME MONITORING OF GEOTECHNICAL INSTRUMENTS
Mr Johnny Huang, SGW Engineering Services, Taiwan
This talk will focus on real time monitoring of instruments that enables engineers to receive timely
data and help them to make crucial judgment when the need arises. Real time instrumentation
experience from projects that range from cut and cover system to NATM mining methods in
Singapore and Taiwan will also be highlighted.
CHALLENGES AND IMPROVEMENTS IN REAL TIME MONITORING & ALERT SYSTEMS
Dr Tan Guan Hong, SysEng (S) Pte Ltd
In Real Time Monitoring & Alert systems where the sensor readings reach the users in the shortest
time, a System Engineering approach will ensure data quality. The data flow must minimise any
possible human errors and delays. However, when it is fully automatic, new challenges need to be
anticipated to ensure quality. Practical challenges and improvements on the Real Time Monitoring &
Alert Systems will be addressed in this presentation.

SELECTION OF INSTRUMENTATION AND TRIGGER LEVELS FOR SITE IMPLEMENTATION Dr Indrayogan Yogarajah, GeoEng Consultants The choice of appropriate instruments is important to ensure that only reliable and useful instruments are implemented on site and only meaningful data is collected. The selection of various critical limits requires careful consideration to ensure that they could serve their intended function. Experience gained from implementation of critical limits on site will also be discussed. INSTRUMENTATION WORKS FOR ERSS: REGULATORY ASPECTS Dr Poh Teoh Yaw, Building and Construction Authority Adequate and reliable instrumentation and monitoring plays a crucial role in ensuring the safety of ERSS and its adjacent buildings. This paper will highlight some regulatory aspects of instrumentation works used in ERSS.The paper will also discuss some good practices and common mistakes observed in the instrumentation works used in deep excavation projects. NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN GEOTECHNICAL INSTRUMENTATION Mr Kim Malcolm, ITM-Soil Pte Ltd Recently there have been advances and new developments in the technology of geotechnical instrumentation. More robust and accurate sensors are now available with capabilities to transmit instrumentation data in real time through the internet. This presentation will highlight the new developments with their historical background. PRACTICES AND CHALLENGES IN INSTRUMENTATION FOR EXCAVATION Mr Yoshihiro Yokoi, Kiso Jiban Consultants The instrumentation and monitoring system for excavation works is very important for geotechnical design verification and safe construction work. Sometimes it also has a large impact on construction cost. This talk will examine common practices, limitations and challenges of the instruments used to measure the vertical and horizontal movement of the ground, the pore water pressure and the earth pressure which are affected by the excavation works.
