The 4th International Conference on Tunnel Boring Machines in Difficult Grounds.
TBM DiGs is an international conference series that provides a specialized technological forum discussing and exchanging knowledge related to TBM works in difficult grounds. The series covers a wide range of topics, including characterization of difficult grounds, field observations and case studies, physical and laboratory tests, numerical modelling and techniques, treatments of difficult grounds, TBM design and installation, tunnel support design, monitoring and risk management. TBM DiGs 2019 is the fourth conference in this series.
The conference aims to bring together all who are interested in the use of tunnel boring machines in difficult ground, to review developments in the field over the previous two years, and to attempt to extrapolate for the near-term future. We anticipate that the conference will explore a great variety of topics.
Keynote speakers include:
- Werner Burger, Chief Engineer, Herrenknecht AG
- Wang Dujuan, Chief Technical Officer, China Railway Equipment Group (CREG)
- Herbert Einstein, Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Lok Home, President, The Robbins Company
- Brian Russell, Vice President, HNTB
- Anoosh Shamsabadi, Transportation Engineering Manager, California High Speed Rail Authority
The Conference provides an excellent opportunity for sharing knowledge through presentations. The Conference plans to accept submittals for oral presentation and for poster presentation.
The 4th International Conference on Tunnel Boring Machines in Difficult Grounds (TBM DiGs 2019) venue will provide ample high-quality exhibition space. Exhibits from companies, manufacturers, suppliers, service providers, and others involved with tunnel boring machines or related industries are welcome.
