The annual symposium was held in Ottawa, Canada from 9-14 June. This year, the theme of the symposium was "Sustainable and Safe Dams Around the World".
iC was present with a booth (no. 230) and a presentation.
In the course of the symposium a publication with the same title was published. iC is represented with a contribution around the topic " Innovative 3D ground models for complex hydropower projects":
"Digital 3D geotechnical models have become indispensable for the design of today‘s large hydropower projects. The amount of data, complex design requirements, and the necessary flexibility throughout the design and construction periods demand innovative tools and workflows. This paper presents approaches that were developed and successfully applied for: (1) compiling, analyzing and visualising large amounts of factual data, (2) describing heterogeneous and complex rock mass properties in models suitable for large-scale 3D design software, (3) verifying and updating models during on-going investigation and excavation works, and visualizing, planning and guiding (4) grouting operations and monitoring programs."
