AsRTC7: Thick Deltaic Deposits

ISSMGE Asian Technical Committee 7 (ATC 7) aimed at promoting and enhancing professional activities focusing on the geotechnical issues on thick deltaic deposits. Thick soft clay deposits exist everywhere in the world. Many developed countries get short of the lands for urban and industrial developments; the use of clay deposits has increased remarkably. Thick deposits of soft soils may invoke many geotechnical problems during construction in urbanization. In deltaic areas, thick clay deposits have been problematic during urban and industrial developments, and therefore attracted attentions from civil engineers with huge challenges. Notable examples of the challenges faced in civil and geotechnical engineering include: large settlement of the Kansai International Airport, subsidence of Bangkok city, reclamation works in Singapore, and geotechnical issues in the thick deltaic deposits.

ATC 7 aims to promote and enhance the professional activities in geotechnical engineering related to depositional history and environments, engineering properties, and foundation problems on thick deltaic deposits. ATC 7 developed a website for communication and information exchange. The website can be accessed through the link https://sites.google.com/site/atc7issmge/home.
ATC 7 members are honored to have all the distinguished friends and guests from USA, India, Taiwan, Japan, Kazakhstan, Slovakia and Korea who are dedicated to this workshop. We hope that this workshop will play a key role for realizing our goals and encourage collaborative research works.

* Depositional history and environments,

* Engineering properties, and

* Foundation problems on thick deltaic deposits.
