The European Working Group on Internal Erosion (EWG-IE) was set up in 1993 to focus on the vulnerability of dams to internal erosion. After an inaugural workshop on definitions and needs, the Group has regularly organized Annual Meetings to share knowledge and address emerging issues on soil internal erosion in water retaining structures. Over the years, the Meetings have seen the participation of university researchers, scientists and engineers from agencies, industries, and public bodies, from Europe and overseas.
Following the last successful event in Delft in September 2017, the objective of the meeting in Milano is to serve as a fertile discussion platform, strengthening sound knowledge as well as introducing novel ideas, in the thematic areas in line with the traditional aims of EWG-IE.
More than 100 authors, coming from academic institutions, private and public bodies, in European and overseas countries, will contribute to the peer-reviewed papers and presentations.
These will be grouped into four sections, namely
• laboratory techniques and findings;
• from modeling to design criteria;
• prevention measures and field assessment;
• open issues for discussion and contribution.
Researchers, scientists and engineers are invited to participate.
