Registration Open for International Deep Mixing Conference Online in June

April 2, 2021, Hawthorne N.J.:

Registration is open for Deep Mixing 2021 — Best Practice and Legacy being held as an all-online workshop in three consecutive weeks in June each lasting two days, and 2-3 hours per day – June 1 & 3, June 8 & 10, June 15 & 17.

Topics include deep mixing and mass mixing by mechanical means with and without fluid energy (hybrid mixing). Each day of the conference will be presented in a workshop format including keynote lectures, featured presentations, research and detailed discussion on specific aspects of the industry, including:

  • State of the Practice Internationally and Lessons Learned
  • Material Properties
  • Field Performance
  • Design Analyses
  • Liquefaction Mitigation
  • Environmental Soil Mixing

The keynote lectures by renowned international deep mixing specialists will highlight international practices and lessons learned, design and contracting strategies, recent research, earth retention and liquefaction mitigation methods, and environmental considerations.

Workshop chairs will lead overview presentations on the technical paper content in each topic to allow attendees to grasp the main findings of the proceedings and their impact on deep mixing practices. Recorded presentations of the more than 100 technical paper contributions will be available for viewing and reading in advance of the workshop dates so registrants can come prepared to interact with speakers and panelists. Structured discussion will highlight the main trends and topics and suggest future work and focus areas. 

“For almost 25 years, a consortium of global practitioners has organized and presented these Deep Mixing conferences to advance the understanding, use and performance of deep mixing internationally,” explains Professor Michał Topolnicki, Ph.D., of Keller, Poland, and conference organizing committee co-chair. “The archives from these international conferences contain a wealth of knowledge that charts the evolution of the understanding of material properties, new technologies, research, mix designs, and quality control and assurance for wet and dry deep mixing methods.”
