Maccaferri supports important geotechnical lecture applied to mining that addresses scenarios and perspectives.
Since 2005 the ABMS – Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Brazilian Association conducts the current Lecture Milton Vargas (formerly called ABMS Lecture) who was born with the aim of disseminating Geotechnics and the Association itself in different regions of the country.
The ABMS is a technical and scientific non-profit association, of great tradition in Brazilian engineering, which currently has about a thousand members.
Founded in 1950, the ABMS gathers in Brazil geotechnical professionals working in the segments:
- Soil Mechanics
- Rock Mechanics
- Mechanics of Floors
- Environmental Geotechnics
- Petroleum Geomechanics
- And other activities of Geotechnical Engineering
Each year a renowned professional is chosen to address an issue concerning the geotechnical in several cities of Brazil.
This year will be given by Eng. Geol. Romero Cesar Gomes (UFOP – Federal University of Ouro Preto) with the theme: “Geotechnics Applied to Mining Scenarios and Perspectives”.
This theme is addressing the general scenarios of geotechnical problems in mining ventures, with conventional applications of geotechnical engineering in solving these issues and context of alternative solutions, based on current challenges and short and medium-term prospects.
Maccaferri is corporate partner of ABMS and also cares to disseminate knowledge of new technologies to geotechnical medium, therefore, is one of the sponsors companies of the 11th edition of Lecture Milton Vargas. Associated with more than ten years at the ABMS Maccaferri conducts and supports the most important geotechnical events in Brazil and Latin America, organized and carried out by this important entity.
