TRANSOILCOLD 2019 Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions, St. Petersburg, Russia

TRANSICOLD 2019 will take place on 20 –23 May 2019, in St. Petersburg, Russia.

 

The “cold regions” of the world cover large areas in the northern hemisphere, including Canada, Alaska, Finland, Norway, Sweden, vast portion of China and Russia, and all the northern tier of the United States. Cold regions cover 50% of the world’s total land area. 

Transportation infrastructure in cold regions faces great technical challenges due to ground freeze-thaw or permafrost degradation. New transportation infrastructure on embankments, such as high-speed railways on slab tracks or highways, requires high geometry standards. 

TRANSOILCOLD2019 aims to provide a broader look at the overall problems faced by designers, contractors, and infrastructure owners during planning and building of transport infrastructure in cold regions.

 

Conference programme includes Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium on 20 May 2019. Specialists under 35 years old are invited. The best presentation author will be awarded the reimbursement of participation cost for XVII European Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ECSMGE 2019), Reykjavik, Iceland.
