Observation method

The Observation Method is a design method in which the instability of the subsoil is not offset by the traditional safety factors, but rather by monitoring behaviour during the performance of the work.

Coupled with the use of scenarios – where a response measure is provided for virtually any uncertain event – use of the Observation Method can help achieve the required level of reliability. Various pre-established threshold values determine the time when response measures are implemented.
