The ITACET Foundation is pleased to announce that it is organising a one-day training session entitled "Tunnelling 4.0: New technologies & automation" in collaboration with the Argentinian Association of Tunnels and Underground Space (AATES). This event will be held in Buenos Aires on 24th September 2019 within the scope of the 9th "Tunnelling and Underground Space Days".
The aim of the session is to highlight some of the most advanced aspects of digital technology applications in the design and construction of underground facilities. The programme will be split into two main parts: the first will take a look at Building Information Modelling (BIM) for underground applications, whilst the second will focus on automation perspectives in the design and construction of underground works.
Speakers will notably include Dr. Jurij Karlovsek, animateur of the International Tunnelling Association's WG22 on Information Modelling in Tunnelling.
After a first event on "Underground Space Use" organised by the ITACET Foundation and the Tunnelling Association of Nigeria in 2018, both organisations are pleased to announce that a seminar on "The Main Tunnelling Processes" will be held on 16th October 2019, in Abuja.
This seminar aims to take a deeper look into the tunnelling processes with a presentation of some of the major issues related to design and construction aspects. The objective is to help project owners understand how to manage underground works projects and set up a suitable project organisation.
