23-24 Nov 2017 Champs Sur Marne (France)

Objectives and Topics of the Symposium

The first international symposium on geotechnical problems of railways, organised in Paris in 2011 (GEORAIL 2011), has been a place for exchanges and discussions to all engineers and researchers who contribute to controlling the behaviour of soils and railway structures, traditional and innovative, and to managing natural hazards and environmental impacts linked to railway activities.

The second symposium took place in November 2014 (GEORAIL 2014) concerned the geotechnical aspects of the construction, maintenance and management of railways and other guided transport infrastructures.

This third symposium, to be held on 23-24 November 2017 (GEORAIL 2017), includes the interaction of rolling loads with the track structure.

The topics of the symposium all relate to the geotechnical aspects of the construction, maintenance and management of railways and other guided transport infrastructures, including the interaction of the rolling loads with the railway structures.

The symposium will preferentially cover the following subjects:
- design of new railway lines, tram and metro, and restoration of existing lines,
- mechanical behaviour of platforms and superstructure of the railway, transition areas,
- diagnosis, characterization and pathology of the existing lines,
- natural hazards and evolutions of the environment,
- preventive and curative maintenance, rehabilitation, particularly in dense zone,
- railways in tunnels,
in terms of studies, research and examples of projects and works.

Engineers and researchers from all countries are invited to this symposium, to share their knowledge and experience in the field of railway geotechnical engineering.
