LOCALIZATION AND STABILITY OF UNDERGROUND CAVITIES

LOCALISATION ET STABILITE DES CAVITES SOUTERRAINES

THE AIM OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO FULFIL THE REQUIREMENTS OF SPONSORS IN THE FIELD OF UNDERGROUND CAVITIES: DETECTION BY MEANS OF SURFACE GEOPHYSICAL METHODS, DETERMINATION OF THE STABILITY OF UNDERGROUND CAVITIES AND OF THEIR EFFECTS ON STRUCTURES. IN 1979 IT IS ENVISAGED TO CONTINUE RESEARCH IN THE FOLLOWING TWO FIELDS: DEVELOPMENT OF AND CONTINUATION OF TESTS ON NEW DETECTION METHODS: REMOTE LOGGING AND ARTIFICIAL MAGNETO-TELLURIC (M.T.A.) TECHNIQUES; STUDY OF THE RISKS OF EVOLUTION IN UNDERGROUND CAVITIES AND KARST, AND EFFECTS ON STRUCTURES.
