Conference on Dredged Materials to Discuss Geosynthetics Solutions

The South Baltic Conference on Dredged Materials in Dike Construction will take place in Rostock / Hohe Düne, 10-11 April 2014.

The conference is organised in the frame of the project DredgDikes in which the application of dredged materials in dike construction is investigated. There are a variety of research groups dealing with this topic as well as the general applicability of fine-grained organic dredged materials or composite materials in geotechnical engineering.

Also, geosynthetics solutions to solve some of the problems connected to the use of fine-grained organic dredged materials in dike constructions will be reviewed.

Topics

– Geochemical and geotechnical characterisation of dredged materials and composite materials containning dredged materials;

– Legal background for the beneficial use of dredged materials in geotechnical applications;

– Utilisation of fine-grained organic dredged materials in geotechnical applications;

– Utilisation of composite materials containing dredged materials in geotechnical applications;

– Geosynthetics solutions to improve dredged materials to be used in geotechnical applications;

– Special aspects and case studies for the use of dredged materials in dike construction.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
