The Argentine Association of Geology Applied to Engineering (ASAGAI), Argentine National Group of the International Association for Engineering and the Environment (IAEG), invites you to participate in the Congress to be held on 22, 23 and 24 August 2018 in the city of San Luis, in the province of the same name.
The Association, created in 1975, organized in September 1981 the First Symposium of Geology Applied to Engineering and after the XI Symposium of Geology Applied to Engineering and the Environment, held in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires in 2015, decided that the event organized every three years modify its name according to the hierarchy that it has reached over time.
It is a new stage that is opening up, that of the ASAGAI congresses, with the particularity that the first one will take place in the same area as the 1981 Symposium: the City of San Luis.
Geology Applied to Engineering is defined in the statute of the International Association for Engineering and the Environment (IAEG) as “the science of research, study and solution of environmental and engineering problems arising as a result of the interaction between geology and human activities and works, as well as of the prediction and development of measures to anticipate or correct geological hazards”.
Geology Applied to Engineering includes: “the definition of the geomorphology, structure, stratigraphy, lithology and aquifers of geological formations, the chemical and hydraulic properties of all materials involved in construction, resource extraction and environmental modification; the assessment of the hydrological and mechanical behaviour of soils and rocky massifs; the prediction of changes in the above properties over time; the determination of the parameters to be taken into account in the analysis of the stability of engineering works and land; the maintenance and improvement of the environmental condition of the land”.
