39th Annual Grouting Short Course

When:

February 12 - 16, 2018

Where:

Austin, Texas

This is the new, updated edition of the original Grouting course that has been running for 39 years. Texas’ Cockrell School of Engineering is proud to host this special event through their Texas Engineering Executive Education (TxEEE) unit. This truly is a world-class training event with the international grouting leaders teaching the latest best practices.

The Grouting Fundamentals & Current Practice course covers pressure grouting as a method to improve geotechnical characteristics of soils and rock masses. Owners, regulators, consultants, and contractors who have interest in pressure grouting should attend. You will also be taught a broad array of geo-structural construction and remediation techniques. This course is also for petroleum engineering personnel involved in well drilling and operations.

Major topics include rheological properties of cementitious and chemical grouts, cement and chemical grouting procedures, grouting of rock under dams, grouting of rock anchors and micropiles, deep mixing, jet grouting, cutoff walls and composite seepage barriers, compaction grouting, slab jacking, grouting for underground structures, overburden and rock drilling methods, and field monitoring/instrumentation. An on-site field demonstration is also included.

ISHS 2018 – 7th Annual Symposium on Hydraulic Structures

When:

May 15 - 18, 2018

Where:

Aachen, Germany

Hydraulic engineering is one of the most challenging fields in civil engineering and becomes more and more important in times of climate and demographic change. Particularly, the flow around structures is of a complex nature and flow phenomena are still not fully understood. This symposium aims to bring together experts working in the specialized field of hydraulic structure design from both, research and practice communities. It will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of recent advances in knowledge as well as future needs.

The symposium is yet another event in a series of successful workshops and symposia organized by the IAHR Hydraulic Structures Committee during the last decade – e.g. ISHS2016 (Portland, USA), IJREWHS2016 (Lübeck, Germany), IWHS2015 (Coimbra, Portugal), ISHS2014 (Brisbane, Australia), IJREWHS2014 (Spa, Belgium), IWLPKW2013 (Paris, France), IWLHS2013 (Aachen, Germany), ISHS2012 (Porto, Portugal), and many more.

The 2018 ISHS edition will be held in Aachen, Germany. The surroundings of Aachen are characterized by a long tradition in hydraulic engineering being reflected in a large number of dams, weirs and other structures as well as a high density of consultancies and local water associations.
