This article presents a general review of contemporary instrumentation concepts and procedures as applied to geotechnical engineering projects in soft clay. The need for instrumentation is discussed, and the types of measurements most frequently required as well as the measurement techniques generally employed are pointed out. A number of hypothetical case studies are presented in order to illustrate the need for observational programmes and to indicate the function of instrumentation in relation to the principal geotechnical problems that are characteristic of the examples cited.(a) /TRRL/
