2nd seminar on Geotechnics in Transportation (2SGT2019)
01/28/2019–01/29/2019 Vila Franca de Xira, Portugal
The 2nd Seminar on Geotechnics in Transportation (2SGT2019) on "Challenges Associated with Land Improvement in Alluvial Zones" will be held on 28 and 29 January 2019 in the Auditorium of the Word Library of the Municipal Library.
This Seminar is a joint organization of two of the TCs of the Portuguese Geotechnical Society: the Portuguese Geotechnical Commission on Transport (CPGT) and the Portuguese Geosynthetics Commission (IGS-Portugal).
This edition is sponsored by Vila Franca de Xira Town Hall and will be held on January 28 and 29, 2019 in the Auditorium of the Word Library of the Municipal Library.
Significant progress in soil improvement and reinforcement methods is expected in the near future to meet the challenges that the increasingly demanding market poses, in particular with regard to greater efficiency and speed of control of costs. In view of the importance of ensuring best practice in the indispensable land improvement works, which will certainly be included in the investments planned in the country in the transport infrastructures, this seminar intends to present the most recent national and international experience of geotechnical solutions for soil improvement in the infrastructure, road, rail, airport and maritime-port infrastructures, focusing on the experience acquired in the execution and observation of work cases, coupled with recent developments of innovative techniques and with greater sustainability.
