About the Conference
Geotechnics for High Speed Corridors- GHC 2019
Highways and Railways are essential components of development and are vital for the economic growth of the country. The growing economy requires expansion of existing carriageways into multi-lane expressways and development of new road / rail routes. However, difficult subsoil conditions along with high economic and social costs and dearth of good construction material coupled with environmental constraints pose major challenges to development of the road and rail networks. The International Conference on Geotechnics for High Speed Corridors- GHC 2019,aims to highlight the latest Geotechnical innovations and challengesin Transportation Engineering projects. It is the second International Conference organized by Indian Geotechnical Society – Thiruvananthapuram Chapter. The conference will provide a platform for Academicians, Research scholars, Practicing Engineers and Students, working in the area of Geotechnical Engineering to interact and share their experience and knowledge. This conference provides an opportunity for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find partners for future collaboration.
Date of Conference: 24th & 27th July 2019
Location: Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India.
