DLSU delegates at Swissotel Le Concorde, Bangkok.
GEOMATE International Society in coordination with Southeast Asian Geotechnical Society (SEAGS), Suranaree University of Technology, Thailand, AOI-Engineering, Useful Plant Spread Society, HOJUN, Cosmo Winds, and Glorious International organized The Sixth International Conference on Geotechnique, Construction Materials and Environment, GEOMATE 2016, last November 14 to 16, 2016 at Swissotel Le Concorde, Bangkok. The conference aims to provide an opportunity to share researches on geo-engineering, construction materials, environmental issues, water resources, and earthquake and tsunami disasters. The conference was also dedicated to the Tohoku-Kanto earthquake victims that happened on March 11, 2011.  

Civil Engineering Department Assoc. Professors, Dr. Mary Ann Q. Adajar and Dr. Bernardo A. Lejano, Assistant Professor Richard M. De Jesus, Academic Service Faculty Engr. Joenel G. Galupino, PhD students Engr. Gilford B. Estores and Engr. Erica Elice S. Uy, former graduate student Engr. Jayvee L. Gagan and BS-MS student Bryan Joseph T. Medrano went to the conference to present their respective researches.

Nine best paper awards based on peer reviews were awarded during the welcome dinner. Two out of 9 awardees were from De La Salle University. The two papers which were co-authored by DLSU CE Dept. faculty members - Dr. Jonathan Dungca and Dr. Barnardo Lejabo - are:  

  • Pull-Out Strength of an Expansion Stud Anchor in Carbon Fiber Reinforced Concrete by Gilford B. Estores and Bernardo A. Lejano
  •  Soil Bearing Capacity Reference for Metro Manila, Philippines by Jonathan R. Dungca, Ismael Concepcion Jr., Moises Christian Mickail Limyuen, Terence Oliver See and Marion Ryan Vicencio
