Abstract

Full-scale and field experiments are usually an expensive and time-consuming effort. To be successful they require a thorough and comprehensive preparation that includes a definition and objectives of the investigation and proceeds through a series of steps with regard to instrument specifications, arrangement, readings taken, and processing of the obtained data. In practice these experiments cannot be repeated, so all efforts must be considered to reveal and reinforce any weak links that can contribute to the failure of the investigation.
