7th International Conference on Unsaturated Soils (UNSAT2018)

GDS exhibited alongside their Chinese agents Earth Products China (EPC) at the recent UNSAT2018 conference in Hong Kong. The event was hosted by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, with whom GDS developed their inner cell volume measurement method for unsaturated testing.

Key themes of the conference included...

  • Fundamental soil behaviour
  • New equipment and testing methods
  • Modelling
  • Geotechnical engineering problems
  • Energy and environmental issues

During the conference GDS ran a draw to win a signed copy of Charles Ng book on Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineering which, he wrote with GDS founder Bruce Menzies.  The book was won by Corey McCauley-Walton, Assistant Professor at Bucknall University. Corey can be seen in the picture on the right receiving his book from Charles Ng and Clayton Dodd, Sales Director at GDS. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank EPC for their help organising our stand and to the organising committee who put on a great conference.
