The Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) recently partnered with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, to conduct a field-based Engineering With Nature Workshop to demonstrate the application of native plant species to support engineering objectives.

The workshop demonstrated how best to maximize environmental benefits of nature-based features to enhance the structural integrity of dykes in placement areas within Galveston Bay, Matagorda Bay, Corpus Christi Bay and surrounding ecosystems and provided instructions to an interagency group concerning EWN principles, USACE said.

This is the first of the series of EWN field-based workshop facilitated by ERDC to train USACE engineers, scientist and project managers about new techniques to manage dredge material placement areas using native vegetation.

“Participants gained field experience in new planting techniques and identified potential applications of EWN principles with ongoing and new projects within the USACE Southwest Division,” USACE said in its announcement.

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.
