The XVIIth ECSMGE conference, held in Reykjavik with the theme “Geotechnical Engineering, foundation of the future” on September 1-6, had a lot of content related to levees and also to dams.
ISSMGE TC201 on “Geotechnical aspects of Dykes and Levees” has some members in common with ICOLD LE TC and EUCOLD LFD WG. We will in the future continue to exchange information between our ICOLD groups and TC201, as well as encourage actual collaboration (see report).
With the help of Meindert Van for review and of Cor Zwanenburg for a list of levee papers, we produced a report on the conference with links to additional information, that we encourage you to read.
The report is available for download from our “Members only” menu in the web site.
