Paper Abstract

In the framework of a large-scale monitoring program conducted by the Port Authority of Genoa, the east quay wall of the San Giorgio pier has been equipped with an array of more than 60 SOFO fiber optic sensors for continuous monitoring. These sensors allow the measurement of the pier displacements during the dredging works, ship docking and in the long term. The sensors measure the curvature changes in the horizontal and vertical planes and allow a localization of settlements with a spatial resolution of 10 m over a total length of 400 m. The system is in operation since fall 1999, and data has been collected automatically and continuously since then. This paper is intended to present the first analyses and interpretations performed on the monitoring data. Correlation of raw data and curvature analysis to environmental conditions is also presented.
