Opening Ceremony of the 16th National Symposium on Foundation Treatment
The symposium revolves around discussions on the latest achievements on the theme of "Opportunities and Challenges in Foundation Treatment along the Belt and Road". The conference invited 11 well-known experts and scholars at home and abroad, who are engaged in ground treatment research, to give special invitation reports, and 78 experts and representatives gave thematic reports at the branch venues, covering civil engineering, construction, transportation, ocean, environment, water conservancy and other projects. The field reflects the latest progress in the direction of foundation treatment in China in recent years. During the meeting, discussions and speeches were active and the atmosphere was lively, and very good results were received.
With the end of the opening ceremony, a series of exquisite foundation treatment academic reports began under the leadership of academician Xiaonan Gong, bringing one after another academic feast to all the experts and scholars attending the meeting. The 16th National Symposium on Foundation Treatment has provided a good platform for the researchers of foundation treatment to communicate, learn and solve their doubts.
In this symposium, Academician Xiaonan Gong brought his views on “geotechnical engineering norms”, which he put forward 21 years ago (1999), to the report, pointing out that norms should be formulated and practiced according to the characteristics of geotechnical engineering. Geotechnical engineering specifications should be General rather than detailed, and the terms should be in principle. At the same time, several problems that should be paid attention to in foundation treatment are also mentioned, such as the formation condition of composite foundation, the technology of pile implantation, the criterion of geotechnical engineering, the bearing capacity of foundation, and geotechnical engineering investigation.
Xiaonan Gong, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, gave a report titled "Several Issues That Should Be Paid Attention to in Foundation Treatment"

“A nine-storeyed terrace must be constructed from its very base” As a basic subject of civil engineering, foundation treatment technology has a wide range of applications in the construction of major facilities such as high-speed railways, highways, high-rise buildings, bridges, and airports. The successful holding of the 16th National Symposium on Foundation Treatment has promoted the exchange and development of foundation treatment research.
The symposium ended successfully on the afternoon of May 9. The two-day meeting conducted a comprehensive and in-depth discussion on the development and application of foundation treatment technology, foundation engineering survey technology, design calculations, construction equipment, etc., and also pointed out the direction for subsequent development in the field of foundation treatment.
