XVI Danube-European Conference on Geotechnical Engineering: Geotechnical Hazards and Risks: experiences and practices

XVI Danube-European Conference on Geotechnical Engineering: Geotechnical Hazards and Risks: experiences and practices

Description

The idea for the conference theme comes from the several catastrophic events during past years, not only in the region. So, it is more than evident that risk assessment and management are required in all aspects of geotechnical issues, such as planning, design, construction, maintenance and restoration of structures. International exchange of information is of vital importance today to advance knowledge and experience in this scientific and practical field. 
Papers about influence of geotechnical hazards on infrastructure, landslides, man-made slopes, earthworks, deep excavations, dams, tailings dams, slope failure repair and remediation, flood hazards, earthquakes and seismic events, bridge foundations, tunnelling, karts environments, problematic materials and environments (glacigenic materials, peat, soft soils, collapsing soils, swelling soils, weak rocks, permafrost problems, weathered materials, freezing - thawing problems etc.), selection of parameters for physical and numerical modelling, soil structure interaction, behaviour of unsaturated and saturated materials, case histories etc. are welcomed @ www.decge2018.mk

Additional Information

In the year 1964 the Danube-European Conferences on Geotechnical Engineering (DECGE) were founded in Vienna by Austrian Society of Engineers and Architects (ÖIAV) with its branches for Geotechnical Engineering and Road Engineering.
