Research work funded by POMHAZ has been communicated in the “9th Panhellenic Conference on Geotechnical Engineering” on 4-6 October 2023 in Athens.
The conference aims to record the progress of geotechnical engineering in Greece and Cyprus.
The conference proceedings highlight the original contributions of geotechnical engineering and technical projects and show theoretical and experimental research in soil and rock materials.
Audience: approximately 250 experts, students, researchers, and academics specializing in geotechnical engineering.
CERTH presented four works in sessions related to slope stability, risk geotechnical engineering and soil improvement:
"Uncertainty of geotechnical parameters in heterogeneous spoil deposits of fine grained soil materials from lignite mines" (https://zenodo.org/doi/10.5281/zenodo.10007297)
"Reliability analysis of bearing capacity of a shallow foundation using Monte Carlo simulation" (https://zenodo.org/doi/10.5281/zenodo.10016314)
"Slope stability assessment of reclaimed lignite mines for the creation of pit-lakes_ The case of Lake Most, Czech Republic" (https://zenodo.org/doi/10.5281/zenodo.10016321)

The PoMHaZ project has been presented to the European Research Executive Agency on 13 September 2023 in Brussels.
The presentation took place as part of a joint meeting between the TGK1 working group (chaired by Marwan Al Heib, Ineris) and the TGK2 working group, respectively in charge of post-mining issues and environmental, technical and economic issues relating to the use and processing of coal.
The meeting provided an opportunity for project coordinators to learn more about ongoing and recently completed projects under the RFCS programme, and to discuss opportunities for closer cooperation and more effective dissemination and exploitation of results.
