Exhibiting at the 16th African Regional Conference
In Situ Site Investigation were participating and exhibiting at the 16th African Regional Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering from 27th – 30th of April 2015 (ARC' 16) and also at the 7th International Symposium for the 60th Anniversary of Ménard Pressuremeter (ISP7-Pressio 2015), on 1st – 2nd May 2015, in Hammamet, Tunisia.
With the participation of more than 400 delegates, both events offered opportunities to exchange experiences between contractors, consultants, manufacturing companies, engineers, scientists and academics from all over the world.
The technical exhibition, where In Situ Site Investigation had their own stand and welcomed many interested delegates on site investigation techniques, permitted all delegates and exhibitors to discover the latest methods and technologies for all kind of geotechnical investigations and works both on site and in laboratory. The geotechnical experts coming from academic and professional worlds had the opportunity to discover the latest methods, technologies and the most advanced testing equipments for all kind of geotechnical projects.
During ARC' 16 and ISP7 many researchers, scientists and participating engineers from Africa and overseas countries shared their knowledge and experience on soil mechanics, geotechnical engineering and site investigation practice, through many key note lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations. Also a short course on the Ménard Pressuremeter was held on 30th of April 2015, where equipment and methods of testing were presented in a field demonstration, and data processing in a class session.
