Workshop in Helsinki during NGM2020 is rescheduled!

Dear members and friends of TC216


The next TC216 Workshop planned during NGM2020 in Helsinki is rescheduled on January 18-20, 2021 due to Corona virus outbreak. The organization committee of NGM2020 is working hard to make it succesful as possible. Why don't we help and cooperate the conference with our workshop?

The main topic of the workshop will be “Standardization of laboratory frost heave test”. You can refer the agreements at the last meeting below. Let me know if you'd like to look up the detail.

  1. Discussion on frost heave testing procedure should be continued at the next workshop.
  2. Everybody can fill out the comparison table with the data they have, to give a rating for testing criteria.
  3. Frost heave tests can be categorized into three purposes, test for frost susceptibility, test for frost heave and test for frost heave of artificial freezing. 

I am looking forward to seeing you all at Helsinki, next January!


Best Regards,

Takashi Ono, Chair of TC216
