Werner Lienhart

Werner Lienhart is professor and head of the Institute of Engineering Geodesy and Measurement Systems at Graz University of Technology, Austria. Prior to his current position he was product manager innovation at Leica Geosystems AG’s headquarters in Switzerland. His main research interests are the development and calibration of geodetic and fibre-optic sensors and the analysis of inhomogeneous structural monitoring data.


Micrometre-level Deformation Monitoring of a Concrete Dam

Highly accurate measurements with a high temporal resolution have always been a challenge, especially for locations that are hard to reach since conventional geodetic deformation methods are often unsuitable for such locations. With fibre-optic deformation monitoring, cables can be embedded in an ob... (read more)
