About these proceedings

Introduction

This edited volume deals with the attempts made by the scientists and practitioners to address contemporary issues in geoenvironmental engineering such as characterization of dredged sediments, geomaterials and waste, valorization of waste, sustainability in waste management and some other geoenvironmental issues that are becoming quite relevant in today's world especially in view of the high urbanization rates, advancement in technologies, and changes in consumption behavior of people. In this regard, wastes generated through the daily activities of individuals and organizations pose many challenges in their management. The volume is based on the best contributions to the 2nd GeoMEast International Congress and Exhibition on Sustainable Civil Infrastructures, Egypt 2018 – The official international congress of the Soil-Structure Interaction Group in Egypt (SSIGE).

About the editors

Assistant Professor Tamer Sorour is a Geotechnical Engineer graduated from the Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University, and obtained his PhD from the Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University in 2009. He performed various researches in different fields of Geotechnical Engineering, such as soil dynamics including the hazards accompanied with pile driving in different soil formations as well as the design of machine foundations and soil liquefaction, and the stability of soil slopes under the effect of earthquakes. The field of deep excavations including different shoring and anchorage systems. The field of soil improvement using stone columns and the effect of the installation technique on the behavior of the stone columns. He also shared in different researches that are focused on the response of large diameter piles in different soil formations. He also have minor/major contribution in different mega projects in Egypt as supervisor of structural and geotechnical works including, but not limited to: geotechnical and geo-environmental studies, execution of boreholes, shallow and deep excavation works, performing different laboratory testing, field control and field testing using different techniques, installation of different types of piles, retaining walls and different supported deep excavation systems, soil stabilization, dewatering, protection of side slopes and landslides, grouting and field monitoring. 

Geo-Institute of HBRC is considered one of the largest geotechnical institutes in the Middle East that has ISO certificate. Professor Hisham had been selected to chair the institute from many years ago. This selection had been done based on his activities, accuracy, awareness, and hard work in the research. He is specialized in Geotechnical Testing, Neural Networks for the Geotechnical Engineering, and Soil Improvement.
