two short courses being offered by AEG-BWH.  Space is limited on the 3D Photogammetry short course, so sign up soon!

Baltimore –Washington – Harrisburg Section

Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists

Presents Two Short Courses

Practical Rock Slope Engineering

April 10-11, 2010

Bechtel Power Corporation Building 1                Frederick, Maryland

Chester “Skip” Watts and Martin “Marty” Woodard, Instructors

This two-day short course will examine basic rock slope stability presented from the standpoint of geologists and engineers responsible for evaluating the safety and stability of both natural and manmade rock slopes, including highway cuts, mines, quarries, and building excavations.  Participants will receive a CD-ROM of reference materials plus software, including the Colorado Rockfall Simulation Program (CRSP) and ROCKPACK III for evaluating rockslide potential.


Introduction to 3D Photogrammetry for Rock Mass Analysis

April 17-18, 2010

Bechtel Power Corporation, Building 1             Frederick, Maryland

Paul Hartley, Instructor

This class is a two day introductory course in the use of ground based 3D photogrammetry for rock mass mapping and analysis.  The software program to be used is Sirovision.  The course involves class room overview and planning of the field work, field acquisition of photos, processing of those photos in the classroom to generate 3D images, and rock mass analysis of the 3D images.

The intent of these classes is to tie the use of Sirovision to rock slope analysis and to the ROCKPACK III software. Both classes will utilize actual slopes in a nearby quarry so the participants will be able to apply Sirovision to the same slope that was analyzed the previous week.  Class size is limited to 15 by the number of  Sirovision licenses.
