Vibratory pile driving and deep soil vibratory compaction 21-22 September, Paris. TransVib 2006 international symposium.
The first day will present results of the French national project on vibratory driving, while the second will feature a conference on field measurements of vibratory pile driving and deep vibratory compaction, with data from project and experimental sites and its validation and interpretation. Abstracts should be sent by 15 February to Frédéric Rocher-Lacoste, email: rocher: rocher@lcpc. fr
