X IAGIG, Pisa, 3-4 Settembre 2021

A causa dell’emergenza sanitaria, l’anno scorso è stato necessario rinviare la X edizione dell’Incontro Annuale dei Giovani Ingegneri Geotecnici (IAGIG). Il comitato organizzatore è fiducioso di poter riorganizzare IAGIG a Pisa venerdì 3 e sabato 4 Settembre 2021.

Tutti i giovani ingegneri sono invitati a partecipare inviando anche un proprio contributo tecnico da redigere secondo il template scaricabile qui e inviare a iagig@associazionegeotecnica.it entro il 15 Giugno 2021.

IAGIG è un’iniziativa intesa a promuovere la discussione di argomenti di ingegneria geotecnica e favorire uno scambio di esperienze e conoscenze tra giovani ingegneri, interessati alle problematiche geotecniche, attivi sia in ambito professionale (liberi professionisti, dipendenti di enti pubblici o di imprese, collaboratori presso studi professionali, giovani imprenditori del settore, etc.) sia nel contesto accademico.

I temi centrali dell’incontro riguardano principalmente gli aspetti, tradizionali ed innovativi, della progettazione, esecuzione e controllo di opere di ingegneria geotecnica, come: monitoraggio e controllo di opere geotecniche; Geotecnica sismica; Geotecnica ambientale; case histories e lessons learnt; indagini in sito e di laboratorio; interventi di miglioramento e rinforzo; stabilità dei pendii; ingegneria dei geosintetici; modellazione numerica e fisica dei terreni e delle rocce
