The 3rd workshop on Recent Advances in Practical Applications in Ground Improvement Technologies and Sustainability


On 12th September 2023, at the Pho Yen meeting room, the Geotechnical Engineering, Construction Materials and Sustainability Research Group (GECMS group) organized successfully the 3rd workshop on “Recent Advances in Practical Applications in Ground Improvement Technologies and Sustainability”.

The workshop's keynote speakers are professionals and prestigious experts from global companies including Mr. Albert Kong, Technical Director of TenCate Group, and Mr. Le Thoi Huu, Head of Terre Armee's Vietnam region (a division of the French company Soletanche Freyssinet Group). Attendance of the scientific workshop included teachers, international scientists from Malaysia, Poland, and representatives of domestic construction companies.

The talks delivered at this scientific workshop concentrate on the key issues that are of interest to scientists, such as the application of geosynthetics in geotechnical engineering (reinforced soil walls and slopes, pavement rehabilitation, basal reinforced embankment, tunnel lining), coastal engineering (marine works, inland waterways & impoundments protection), environmental engineering (reinforcement for landfill structures, dewatering, lining system for mine tailing ponds).

The workshop is an ongoing event that is part of an annual schedule of scientific research activities held by the GECMS group to enhance the quality of academic inquiry and technology transfer in the construction industry of the GECMS research team. Additionally, organizing scientific workshops promotes increased collaboration and exchange with domestic and international companies involved in the construction industry.
