4L Trophy

Mr. Remi Saez

  To close the chapter about the 4L Trophy, we invite you to visit our webpage dedicated to this adventure, including an interview of Mr. Remi Saez, one of the students of the expedition.

The 4L Trophy you participated in has been an amazing experience, but how did you come up with the idea to take a part in this project?
In first year, we have been provided with a list of projects. In this list, few projects were of interest to me, except for this one.

What has been your main motivation to participate in this adventure?
First of all, the humanitary side was a strong motivation, then the discovery of Marocco. And the adventure of hitting the road with a 30 year old car. Read more...
CIVA tip: Modes identification


  In CIVA 11, a new tool facilitates the interpretation of the various echoes of a Bscan through modes and paths identification. To use this tool, the "identification mode" must be activated in the model. It is available in the "option" tab under the "simulation settings" panel. To identify the simulated echoes on the Bscan or True Bscan, select them with the selection tool accessible in the data toolbox. Read more..
