The visit of Prof. Charles Ng (Hong Kong, China), the new ISSMGE President,
to St. Petersburg

Prof. Charles Ng was elected as the President of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering at the World Conference in Seoul (2017). He made his first visit to Russia (St. Petersburg) as the ISSMGE President on April 20, 2018 following the invitation of St. Petersburg geotechnical engineers and Technical Committee 207 “Soil-Structure Interaction”.

The ISSMGE President visited the Institute “Georeconstruction”, where the leading St. Petersburg geotechnical engineers informed on the current scientific research in the field of development of software to support SSI calculations, non-linear models of soils and reinforced concrete, and inventions related to calculations of strains of structures built on permafrost soils.

Moreover, the ISSMGE President and St. Petersburg geotechnical engineers had a meeting in Yusupov’s Palace at the Fontanka River, in the premises of Emperor Alexander I St. Petersburg State Transport University. Prof. Charles Ng delivered the lecture “Three-dimensional simulation of twin tunnelling effects on piles and pile groups”.

The local speakers made the following presentations on the state-of-the-art advancement of St. Petersburg Geotechnical School:

  • К.G. Shashkin (Institute “Georeconstruction”) The basic principles of soil-structure interaction calculations;
  • О.А. Buryakov (All-Russian Research Institute of Hydrotechnical Engineering named after B.Е.Vedeneev) The experience of conducting long-term in-situ observations of the state of soil hydrotechnical structures in the Far North of Russia;
  • V.А. Vasenin (Institute “Georeconstruction”) Long-term observations of settlements of buildings and structures;
  • А.G. Shashkin (Institute “Georeconstruction”, St. Petersburg State Transport University) St. Petersburg Geotechnical School.
