South Baltic Conference on
Dredged Materials in Dike Construction,
Rostock, Germany / Hohe DŘne.
The conference is organised in the framework of
the INTERREG project DredgDikes in which the
application of dredged materials in dike
construction is investigated. There are a
variety of research groups dealing with this
topic as well as the general applicability of
fine-grained organic dredged materials or
composite materials in geotechnical engineering.
Also, geosynthetics solutions to solve some of
the problems connected to the use of
fine-grained organic dredged materials in dike
constructions will be reviewed.
Ľ Geochemical and geotechnical characterisation
of dredged materials and composite materials
containning dredged materials
Ľ Legal background for the beneficial use of
dredged materials in geotechnical applications
Ľ Utilisation of fine-grained organic dredged
materials in geotechnical applications
Ľ Utilisation of composite materials containing
dredged materials in geotechnical applications
Ľ Geosynthetics solutions to improve dredged
materials to be used in geotechnical
Ľ Special aspects and case studies for the use
of dredged materials in dike construction
Call for papers: Scientific and technical
papers are welcome on all above mentioned
topics. Deadline for submission of abstracts is
