IS-Glasgow 2019

7th International Symposium on Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials

Strathclyde's Technology & Innovation Centre, Glasgow, UK
26th – 28th June 2019

Under the auspices of the ISSMGE Technical Committee TC101 Laboratory Stress Strain Strength Testing of Geomaterials

The TC101 of the ISSMGE is pleased to announce the 7th International Symposium on Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials to be held in 2019 in Glasgow. The Symposium is co-organised by the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and the University of Bristol. Building on the tradition of previous Symposia from Sapporo in 1994 to Buenos Aires in 2015, IS-Glasgow 2019 will bring together researchers and practitioners to explore new directions in geomaterial testing.

Technical Core Themes

  • Advanced laboratory testing of geomaterials in saturated and unsaturated states.
  • Application of advanced laboratory testing in research, in situ, and ground modelling.
  • Application of advanced testing to practical geotechnical engineering.

Symposium Chairs

  • Prof. Alessandro Tarantino, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK
  • Dr. Erdin Ibraim, University of Bristol, UK
  • Prof. Richard Jardine, Imperial College London, UK
