  1. 1. Value of Information Analysis in Rock Engineering Investigations

    Author : Miriam Zetterlund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Observational Method; Rock mass characterisation; Value of Information;

    Abstract : A challenge in rock engineering is to strike a balance between a reasonable level of investigation and uncertainty in the geological conditions. Value of Information Analysis (VOIA) provides support for decisions about investigation strategies. READ MORE

  2. 2. Value of Information Analysis for Site Investigations in Remediation Projects

    Author : Pär-Erik Back; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; uncertainty; value of information; soil; decision analysis; sampling; remediation; contaminated land; site investigation;

    Abstract : Site investigations of contaminated land are associated with high costs. From a societal point of view, just enough economic resources should be spent to allow societys limited resources to be allocated optimally to sustainable development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Geological Characterisation and the Observational Method. Application of Value of Information Analysis

    Author : Miriam Zetterlund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Value of Information Analysis; Rock mass characterisation; Observational Method;

    Abstract : The implementation of the new European standards for geotechnical design calls for new practice in the underground construction industry in Sweden. The standard proposes the Observational Method as an alternative method when the geotechnical behaviour is difficult to predict. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Applicability of Geoelectrical Methods in Pre-Investigation for Construction in Rock

    Author : Berit Ensted Danielsen; Teknisk geologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Borehole geophysics; Pre-investigation; Geoelectrical imaging; Applied geophysics; Value of Information Analysis VOIA ;

    Abstract : Construction in rock is associated with risks because knowledge of the geology and ground conditions is limited. Unforeseen rock conditions involve a large risk to the project and can in the end entail delays and extra costs. READ MORE
