Deep Mixing 2020 will provide a forum for international exchange of this new information. In keeping with the focus of this series, the conference scope consists of deep mixing and mass mixing by mechanical means that may be assisted by fluid energy (hybrid mixing). The technical program will include presentations on all aspects of current soil mixing technology, including contemporary research and lessons learned, and will provide a forum for discussion with all stakeholders (authorities, clients, contractors, consultants, researchers, equipment manufacturers and binder suppliers). Deep Mixing 2020 will also focus on defining the future of deep mixing and transferring the charge of advancing the industry to the next generation of practitioners… passing the torch.
Call for Abstracts
Abstracts for technical papers are invited addressing frontiers of soil mixing related to the following topics:
- Laboratory mixing and material testing
- Properties of treated soil materials (binders, durability, material models)
- Analyses and design procedures (methodology, modeling, recommendations, codes)
- Contracting strategy/specications/practice
- Field testing and performance monitoring (measurements, long-term data)
- Mixing equipment and construction technologies
- Quality control and quality assurance
- Environmental mixing and related research
- Liquefaction mitigation with mixing (analyses, experience)
- Case histories with lessons learned
Papers selected for verbal presentation will be delivered in workshop-style sessions including dedicated time for discussion and sharing experience.
Parties interested in presenting and publishing a paper or presenting a panel discussion are invited to submit abstracts not more than 300 words to the conference online submission site at www.dfi.org/DM2020.
