Juulia Väisänen’s diploma thesis awarded as the best of the year


The diploma thesis of our designer Juulia Väisänen was awarded as the best geotechnical diploma thesis by Finnish Geotechnical Association SGY yesterday, 5 November 2020.

Juulia did the work as an assignment for Geobotnia Oy and the topic of the work was “Consideration of the flowability of tailings in the geodesign of mining dams”. The dissertation approaches the topic from the point of view of practical design and presents classification maps based on CPTU drilling results, which can be used to assess the run-off susceptibility of tailings and residual shear strength evaluation methods.

A big congratulations to Juulia!
