Knight Piésold Peru Presents at the 7th International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering

June 24, 2019, Lima, Peru – Two engineers from Knight Piésold Peru, Susana Orellana and Gavi Sotelo, took part in the 7th International Conference on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering (7ICEGE), presenting the paper titled: “Geotechnical Characterization of Collapsible Soils - A case of study.” The paper covered the shear response and dynamic geotechnical characterization of a type of soil deposit rarely found in nature: collapsible soils cemented by salts. It presented a summary of the geotechnical characterization performed on a deposit of collapsible soil at a proposed mine site near the southern coast of Peru.

The 7ICEGE conference, which was held on June 17-20 in the historic city of Rome, Italy, addressed topics relating to the most recent developments in earthquake geotechnical engineering, encouraging technical interaction within seismology, geophysics, geology, and structural and infrastructural engineering.

The conference included general sessions (key lectures) and parallel sessions with topics, such as seismic hazard assessment, constitutive models, seismic site characterization, liquefaction impact and mitigation, and field testing, among others. Each edition of the conference is held every four years in cities that were hit by significant earthquakes.
