4th International Conference “Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions”

The “cold regions” of the world cover large areas in the northern hemisphere, including Canada, Alaska, Finland, Norway, Sweden, vast portion of China and Russia, and all the northern tier of the United States. Cold regions cover 50% of the world’s total land area.
Transportation infrastructure in cold regions faces great technical challenges due to ground freeze-thaw or permafrost degradation. New transportation infrastructure on embankments, such as high-speed railways on slab tracks or highways, requires high geometry standards. Using of geosynthetics help to decide this problems.
The 4th conference “Transportation Soil Engineering in Cold Regions” (TRANSOILCOLD2019) will be held 20-23 May, 2019 in S.Petersburg (Russia) to provide a broader look at the overall problems faced by designers, contractors, and infrastructure owners during planning and building of transport infrastructure in cold regions.
Conference programme includes Young Geotechnical Engineers Symposium and Stabilization workshop.
Conference proceedings will be published and indexing by Scopus Citation Index.
