Asian Technical Committee 6
The goals of ATC6 are to promote and share the knowledge of the analysis, design, construction and maintenance of urban geoengineering, mainly inclusive of deep excavation and tunnels, in Asian countries, with particular emphasis on environmental friendliness, sustainability, and diversity. Environmental friendliness addresses the control of ground movement, mitigation measures and risk management. Those control or mitigation measures should be sustainable. Moreover, the performance of deep excavation and tunnels, mitigation measures and risk management are often site dependent and vary from country to country. The ground conditions, construction practices, codes and standards are very different among Asian countries. The engineers, researchers and academia professor can share the diversity through the ATC6 platform.
