Events and training

CSIC runs a number of Industry Partner events throughout the year including training courses and workshops. CSIC also attends major industry conferences.

We offer tailored and open training courses on distributed fibre optic sensing (DFOS), also known as Brillouin sensing.

The courses are developed and delivered by the leading UK specialists in the use of DFOS for geotechnical infrastructure monitoring.

Our open courses cover all aspects of applying DFOS to civil infrastructures and contain real examples of full scale monitoring projects.

Courses include:

Introduction to DFOS for geotechnical infrastructure monitoring: demonstrates how DFOS is implemented and provides an overview of DFOS capabilities and the opportunities it can offer.

Pile testing using DFOS: covers the installation of DFOS onto piles and thermal piles, data processing, data interprestation and engineering back analysis, illustrated with real examples of full scale pile tests carried out by CSIC.
