:: Prof Barla condolences ::
 | Post date: 2019/12/10 | 

We heard the sad news that Prof. Giovanni Barla passed away on 17th of November.

Prof. Barla has been Professor of Rock Mechanics and an expert in the field of rock mass characterization and rock behavior, numerical modelling and back analysis, performance monitoring, slope stability, rock-structure interaction for underground workings and tunnels, Tunnelling in squeezing rock, and surface and underground mining.

As one of the most influential rock mechanics experts of our time he visited Iran on several occasions taking part in conferences and presenting key-note speeches, and consulting on various projects. His vast technical knowledge and his kind personal demeanor were trades that will never be forgotten by those who ever met him. We will keep fond memories from him.

On behalf of the Iranian Tunnelling Association we present our deepest condolences to his close family.

13th Iranian Tunnelling Conference

Olympic Hotel

November 19, 2019 – November 20, 2019

The construction of tunnels has found an important role in improving living standards and underground spaces have become an inseparable part of cities. Authorities of major cities have put utilizing subsurface spaces to solve traffic problems and provide better services to its citizens a priority. Current outlook on design and construction of road and urban tunnels, metro and railway tunnels, and water and service tunnels, all indicate an increasing dependency of the well-being of modern societies to underground structures.

Regardless of this positive outlook; the tunneling industry faces various challenges. However much progress has been made in recent decades and new horizons were opened. Using innovative construction methods and technologies, and utilizing new software for modelling and design, made it possible to face many of the challenges and to construct tunnels with various diameters even in difficult or mixed ground conditions.

The tunnelling industry must be able to provide for needs of the future. Better planning for making best use of subsurface spaces; gaining a better understanding of uncertainties and managing risk; increasing of safety during construction; making use of robotics for maintenance of TBM cutting tools; better understanding of soil conditioning for EPB machines; developing better tools to non-destructively image and evaluate ahead of excavation faces; and making use of past experiences to improve quality of performance whilst reducing unnecessary costs are just few items that could help developing new horizons for the tunneling industry.

This conference aims to provide an opportunity to share relevant knowledge and experience and discuss further development possibilities in tunnelling. The Iranian Tunnelling Association (IRTA) formally invites scientists, university professors, students, researchers, specialists, and professionals involved in tunnelling to participate in this event. Undeniably, an active attendance and participation of those involved in the tunnelling industry in this conference, will guarantee viability and promotion of underground space technologies. In addition to technical sessions and presentations, the conference will include a workshop, a trade exhibition, and technical visits which will surely offer lots of interesting information and also facilitate the establishment of new contacts.
