The workshop on soil nailing brought together members from the construction market and featured a series of informative talks
Andrea Pelizoni from Maccaferri gave a lecture in the city of Belo Horizonte on November 22nd describing the visual and environmental appeals of green face soil nailing solutions.
The Foundations and Geotechnical Works magazine featured Maccaferri’s joint initiative with the Brazilian Association of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ABMS-SP) in the “Workshop on Soil Nailing” in its 72nd issue. The first event was held on July 26th with a program dedicated to the techniques of stabilization of natural or excavated slopes. The event was attended by civil engineers, technicians, students and professionals in the construction market.
This November, the workshop was given to the CREA-MG. The Workshop was held in the city of Belo Horizonte, on November 22nd.
Experts who attended the event held a series of topic-specific talks. The Former president of the Brazilian Association of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ABMS) and member of ANE (National Academy of Engineering), Sayão, gave the first lecture of the event, based on his experience in geotechnical projects, soft soils, dams, slopes, and geosynthetics.
The approach to soil nailing was discussed in more depth in a subsequent lecture by Andrea Pelizoni, from Maccaferri. Focusing on the green face of the soil nailing, Pelizoni discussed the solution’s visual and environmental appeals, and its ability to reduce costs.
Next, Ana Laura Nunes, from COPPE-UFRJ, addressed aspects related to instrumentation and the pull out of staples.
Edézio Teixeira de Carvalho from Geolurb delivered a presentation on “Regional soil and Iron Quadrangle”.
GEOESTÁVEL participated in the Workshop as one of the regional speakers. César de Jesus Ferreira dos Santos delivered a presentation on the theme “Solo Stapled Project”.
Gilian Fonseca from SOEGEO presented on “Methodology and Cases of Works”. The event brought together civil engineers, geotechnicians, students and professionals from the construction market.
