On March 9, 2022, the 28th Darmstadt Geotechnical Colloquium with accompanying technical exhibition was held in attendance for the first time since 2019 under the leadership of University Professor Hauke Zachert. The more than 250 participants visibly enjoyed the event held in the appealing ambience of the Centralstation, a former power plant in the heart of Darmstadt. After a long time, it was finally possible to directly meet with colleagues there.
Professor Ziegler had the honor of chairing the session "Standardization and Legal Matters", in which important topics such as the application of reliability-based methods in the design of pile foundations and the design of geotechnical structures using numerical methods were presented in view of the new Eurocode EC 7. A report on the conference is available here.
The next Darmstadt Geotechnical Colloquium will take place in March 2024.
