National Workshop on Transportation Geomechanics and Ground Improvement 2022

Nov 28, 2022 | Insitutek

The National Workshop on Transportation Geomechanics and Ground Improvement was hosted by the Transport Research Centre (TRC), University of Technology Sydney and co-hosted by the Australian Geomechanics Society, and the technical committees TC202: Transportation Geotechnics and TC211: Ground Improvement of ISSMGE on 24 Nov 2022. Insitutek’s stabilisation and insitu testing methods were of great interest to participants.

The presentations focused on innovative R&D outcomes, practices, technological applications and case studies to allow the audience to learn about new tools and techniques relevant to their work.

A broad range of topics in the program were presented covering emerging themes and advances in the areas of Transport Geotechnics and Ground Improvement, including:

  • Challenges and Innovations in Earthworks Controls for Transport Infrastructure
  • Soft Ground Improvement
  • Tunnelling in Soft Ground
  • Waste Materials in Road and Rail Substructure
  • Port Reclamation
  • AI and Machine Learning Applications
  • Use of Geosynthetics
  • Soft Soil Instability and Mud Pumping under Cyclic Loads
  • Environmental Impact Assessment, among others

We purchased a PANDA 2 machine after using one from another laboratory. The information obtained has saved money on numerous jobs. It is reasonably priced and the after-market service has been great. Highly recommend using Insitutek.
