With the ever increasing urbanization in the world, the demand for underground space continues to grow. Very many urban areas are located on soft ground. Hence tunnellers need to understand how to create underground spaces in this type of strata. In this context, soft ground is defined as a geomaterial with a low strength – such sand or clay, conglomerate or weak rocks like siltstone or chalk. These geomaterials tend to behave largely as continuum. In harder rock (under low stress), discontinuous behaviour tends to dominate – such as block stability. Hence the construction and design of tunnels in harder rock is distinctly different.

There is an urgent need for further progress in structural health monitoring for both civil and maritime structures. Maximising the availability and productivity of onshore and offshore infrastructure and marine vessels, whilst operating them safely and with minimal impact on the environment, is of major concern to operators.
ICSCHM 2023: 17. International Conference on Structural Control and Health Monitoring March 06-07, 2023, Haifa, Israel
The International Research Conference is a federated organization dedicated to bringing together a significant number of diverse scholarly events for presentation within the conference program. Events will run over a span of time during the conference depending on the number and length of the presentations. With its high quality, it provides an exceptional value for students, academics and industry researchers.
Sissterra - A 3D Passive Imaging Solution For Subsoil Exploration In Urban Context, Webinar – Hong Kong
Sixense Group și Association of Geotechical & Geoenvironmental Specialists – AGS-HK vă invita să participați la webinarul tehnic organizat de Maria Saadé și Clément MOGENIER, experți în geofizică in cadrul Sixense.
After a successful hybrid GeoPython 2022 - with participants from over 30 countries - we are proud to announce GeoPython 2023 which will be in Basel, Switzerland - with speakers in-person only. The conference is focused on Python and Geo, its toolkits and applications. GeoPython 2023 will be the continuation of the yearly conference series. The conference started in 2016 and this is now the 8th edition. Key subjects for the conference series are the combination of the Python programming language and Geo.

Learn how to perform geotechnical and geopatial monitoring. Join the live discussion with experts from Worldsensing and Trimble.
This webinar aims to give an introduction about IoT (Internet of Things) remote monitoring technology, your monitoring magnifying glass, and how users may obtain continuous and real-time data to complement geospatial technologies, with total stations as an example. Through a joint geotechnical and geospatial monitoring approach, users may obtain not only backup data but also a fuller and more reliable assessment of the status of projects which is crucial in decision making.
WEBINAR: Second Generation of Eurocode 7 - Basis of Design and how the influence of Groundwater is incorporated in the new code
Eurocode 7 is known as the European standard for geotechnical engineering design and is widely considered as a great success story. The second generation of the standard is currently being drafted by the CEN/TC250 SC7 and will represent a significant step forward towards further harmonization and efficient guidance for geotechnical design.

Although the concept of a circular economy is well established, the interfaces that enable circularity for adjacent industrial sectors is not clear. We’ll explore the challenges and opportunities in this third hack.
Property & Facility Management Conference, cel mai important eveniment local specializat pe servicii de administrare si gestionare a cladirilor si proprietatilor, revine pe 28 martie 2023. Noua editie va aduce in prim-plan tendintele care vor remodela viitorul pietei imobiliare, urmarind felul in care dezvoltam proiecte, construim, ocupam si intretinem proprietatile. Maximizarea eficientei energetice a cladirilor, standardul nZEB si adaptarea pietei de real estate la realitatea economica sunt doar cateva dintre subiectele ce vor fi abordate in cadrul conferintei.
