Measurement While Drilling (MWD) Users Group
This joint industry group was created in cooperation with FHWA, Geo-Institute, DOTs, DFI and TRB Committee AKG20 to share information and provide a forum for interaction among MWD users. The technology is used widely in the US for monitoring foundation installation, but much less frequently for subsurface exploration purposes. The users group will take on projects such as completing an MWD implementation guide and working on a US standard for the technology, as well as generally educating and sharing information about the technology among members.
Anyone interested in MWD is welcome to join. Regular monthly virtual meetings are held using MS Teams on the second Thursday of each month at 3 pm EST. Teams will also be used to house information generated by the group, and links will be provided on this webpage for access.
Group Chair: Jean Benoit
