11.06.2018: Franz-Kögler-Preisträger bei BAUGRUND DRESDEN
As in previous years, the Franz-Kögler Prize was awarded again in the course of the 11th Freiberger Geotechnik Kolloquium on 7 June 2018. This prize is granted by the registered association Verein Freiberger Geotechniker e.V for outstanding accomplishments of students with diploma theses, research projects and other scientific works carried out during their studies. The Franz-Kögler Prize 2017 was thus given to our Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Samuel Lenk for his diploma thesis "Dreidimensionale tunnelstatische Berechnungen mit der Finiten Elemente Methode" ("Threedimensional tunnel static calculations with the finite element method").
We congratulate Mr. Lenk for this extraordinary achievement and are more than happy to see that the Franz-Kögler Prize has been awarded to an engineer working for BAUGRUND DRESDEN for the second time.
31.05.2018: PLAXIS workshop at BAUGRUND DRESDEN
On 28 Mai 2018 BAUGRUND DRESDEN hosted the one-day PLAXIS workshop "Practical use of PLAXIS 2D for Earthquake Geotechnical Analysis". The workshop was aimed at practising engineers from Germany and abroad who already had some experiences with finite elements models but where looking to improve their modelling skills and knowledge in the field of seismic analysis (earthquakes).
In a closing lecutre, BAUGRUND DRESDEN gave an insight into their own experiences and developments in this area (keyword: dynamical phi-c-reduction) which were gained and undertaken within the scope of national and international projects.
14.03.2018: Pedological construction supervision
Apart from regular geotechnical construction supervision BAUGRUND DRESDEN also carries out pedological construction supervision for streets, construction roads and pipelines according to the technical bulletin by BVB (Bundesverband Boden e.V.). The main objective of these works is the protection of the functional performance of soils which are required to resume their natural functions even after considerable and extensive construction projects. We currently provide these services in the course of a new district heating pipeline in Dresden.
