<The Tunisian Association of Soil Mechanics (ATMS) is pleased to invite you to the 16th African Regional Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering to be held from April 27 to 30, 2015 in Hammamet, Tunisia.
The conference will provide a forum for exchange and discussion between engineers, professionals, scientists, researchers, equipment or solution providers operating in the field of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering.
The ARMS is pleased to offer a warm welcome to the participants and accompanying persons and to suggest an enriched and successful social program
The conference will provide to academicians and practitioners the opportunity to exchange the recent developments and to update the acquired knowledge in geotechnical engineering. This event mainly oriented towards specific challenges for Africa.
The conference will include keynotes, oral presentations and poster sessions. I n addition, workshops and trainings will be scheduled.
A large exhibition is planned and will bring together the maximum of professional partners to animate the conference and allow participants from six continents to learn about the solutions offered by professionals and to respond their eventual concerns.
The conference will include a special session « ISP’7 » on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Menard pressuremeter.
The main purpose of the conference is the study of African soils in all aspects: identification, characterization, study of behavior in connection with the design, implementation and monitoring of geotechnical structures.
Priority will be considered for soft soils, expansive soils, dune soils and lateritic soils.
The topics covered in the conference are: soil behavior, soil improvement, deep foundation and underground structures, seismic analysis and management of risks; landslides and environmental geotechnics.
The education and training of technicians in geotechnical engineering also represents a theme of priority during the 16th ARCMSG.
