XV Danube - European Conference on Geotechnical Engineering
9-11 September

The Austrian Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ASSMGE) invited Turner & Townsend to participate in the XV Danube-European Conference on Geotechnical Engineering to be held in Vienna, Austria, on September 9 - 11, 2014. The conference is held under the auspices of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and other Associations. Turner & Townsend will give a speech on tunneling and the ‘success factors for an effective grouting shown in the example of ground improvement of karst formations in a high speed rail tunnel’.

The speech addresses the technical concept (Pressure Sensitive Grouting) as well as its realisation via interdisciplinary project management, which was able to ensure an optimisation of the ground improvement of karst formations for a significant infrastructure project via flexible management.
