International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering
Technical committee 211 - TC 211 – Ground Improvement Period 2013-2017

Chairmen : Noël Huybrechts (Belgian Building Research Institute, Belgium)
Serge Varaksin (Apageo, France)
Secretary : Nicolas Denies (Belgian Building Research Institute, Belgium)

ISSMGE TC 211 aims to foster an international technology transfer and know-how exchange that will effectively contribute to advancing the state of engineering and construction practice and accelerate reliable use of innovative ground improvement geosystems for a variety of engineering applications.

To achieve this goal specifically, in the areas of ground improvement, reinforcement and grouting, effective interaction between government, industry and academia must be established.
TC 211 in its present profile represents all the different ingredients of the ground improvement community.
Actually, TC 211 involves more than 25 country members and more than 50 delegates.
