The Geotechnical Symposium will take place in Goiânia, Goiás, from November 9th to 11th, 2017
The mid-western regional chapter of the Brazilian Association of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ABMS) will promote the 4th edition of the Symposium on the Practice of Geotechnical Engineering in the Mid-Western Region (Geocentro), in the city of Goiânia, Goiás, from November 9th to 11th, 2017.
The event will attract professionals, researchers, undergraduate and graduate students from the area of Geotechnics. The program will include lectures, round tables, and mini-courses, on the following four main topics: soil-structure interaction, geosynthetics and environmental geotechnics, small soil dams and tailings, field research and load tests.
On November 10th at 1.50 PM, our engineer José Roberto de Campos Costa Junior will give the lecture: ‘Innovative erosion control solutions’. Erosion is a frequent problem in engineering works and also in natural topographies. Erosion may be not very visible when it starts but if not mitigated, it can cause serious damage to both engineering works and the environment. In his lecture, José Roberto will present our innovative erosion control solutions, such as geomats, hydro seeding, and other engineering solutions offering the best performance in the market in terms of resistance to UV, abrasion and chemical aggression.
Alongside the Conference, an exhibition will also take place with the main goals of presenting the latest products and services and to foster networking among participants. We will be there to showcase our wide range of solutions, such as gabions, Terramesh® System and MacGrid® for retaining walls and soil reinforcement and erosion control; our dynamic barriers and SteelGrid®, for rockfall protection, among the others.
Our specialists will be glad to welcome you at our booth to discuss any geotechnical or erosion problems you may be facing.
