On September 22 the ISSMGE committee for ground improvement hosts an online presentation about a new jet grouting method from Japan.
In Japan, due to topographical factors, jet grouting has been developed in such a way that it can be executed using a small construction machine and is applied for various purposes.
In his presentation Dr Tsutomu Tsuchiya will introduce the latest jet grouting method, featuring: high quality jet grouting for permanent structures, large diameter jet grouting columns and various shapes of jet grouting columns. Supported by a field application example, Dr. Tsuchiya will also introduce the technical ingenuity that makes these features possible. Furthermore he will discuss future developments.
The online presentation takes place on Friday 22 September, 6:OO PM Japan time (GMT +9:00). Participants can join the directly by using this provided Zoom link. They can also send an expression of interest to the event’s contact (Dr Babak Hamidi via firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive a reminder notification. For more information please see the program’s flyer from ISSMGE.
