18 years of deformation in one image
The QuickScan product has a graphical user interface; every measurement point has a color representing its historic average linear annual deformation rate. Locations that have high deformation rates are shown as red points, while relatively stable locations are shown as green. By clicking on the point, the user can pull up the relevant time series over the whole preceding period as well and quantify the rate of change.
In many locations, this technique enables retrospective failure analysis; which can be hard, expensive or downright impossible to achieve in any other way.
Deformation timeline example
Typical time series obtained from a QuickScan from 2003-2010.
ResultsHansje Brinker will report the results of the QuickScan as follows:
- Database of PSI results, including time series for each individual deformation point (format of your choice, for example shape-file)
- Processing report, including figures, characterization and background.
