Vision

TO AID MIDDLE EAST’S OVERALL GROWTH THROUGH FOCUSED
GEOTECHNICAL AND INFRASTRUCTURE
RESEARCH, EDUCATION,
AND POLICIES.


TO PROVIDE A UNIQUE GROUP WITHIN M.E FOR THE INTERCHANGE OF IDEAS AMONG GEOTECHNICAL AND INFRASTRUCTURE RESEARCHERS, EDUCATORS, MANAGERS AND POLICYMAKERS FROM M.E AND ALL OVER THE WORLD

Mission

TO SERVE AS A RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT GROUP TO GUIDE AND FOCUS GEOTECHNICAL AND INFRASTRUCTURE RESEARCHERS, EDUCATORS, MANAGERS AND POLICYMAKERS IN M.E TOWARDS SATISFYING COUNTRIES' NEEDS AND TO ASSIST IN ITS OVERALL GROWTH.


WITH THE INTENTION OF COVERING ALL MODES AND SECTORS, AND HAVING A SPECIAL INTENTION TO COVER ALL THE SOIL-STRUCTURE INTERACTION TOPICS.

Welcome

Important Question:
Some Geotechnical works and infrastructure were constructed without taking into consideration several factors; such as the soil-structure interaction, impact of earthquakes and others, and some of them were constructed without respecting any standards, however, these projects are still alive and didn't fall? So why do we study these effects? Why is the need for the standards?

Simple Answer:
Such as that can be for a person to get sick .. and not all patients die! Such structures are considered sick .. and not all patients die!
We design all structures to be Healthy Non-Patients, so we must take all the considerations during the design of any structure.
People's lives are not a game in order to run the risk of them!


Doctrines of the Group:

• SSIGE works to provide a unique group within the Middle East for the interchange of ideas among Geotechnical and Infrastructure Researchers, Educators, Managers and Policy Makers from Middle East and all over the world.

• We believe that, the design of any structure is considered a soil-structure interaction problem. So, the civil engineers of the different disciplines should work together for analyzing and designing the different structures. The study of soil-structure interaction is not only a problem for Geotechnical engineers, but also for Geoscience, Geological, Structural, Transportation, and all Civil Engineers.

• Our faith is that the global climate-change studies and its effects on the infrastructures are now very important and will be critical in the near future. “The world is now experiencing unprecedented challenges … Climate change is fast happening, much, much faster than one would have expected … Climate and ecosystems are under growing strain.” – Ban Ki-Moon, Associated Press interview prior to the World Economic Forum, Jan. 21, 2013.

• We also believe that the sustainable design of all structures is a must in the 21th century, which requires the cooperation between the different engineering disciplines; such as: Architecture, Geological, Civil, Urban planning, Energy and Chemical Engineering. The built environment assists as a dynamic interface through which the human society and the ecosystem interrelated and influences each other. Understanding this interdependence is a key to understanding sustainability. There is a rising consensus that delivers a sustainable built environment starts with integrating sustainability thoughts in the planning, design and constructing stages of a project.



A very warm welcome is given to our new researchers and visitors.

We are a Non-Related Group to any International or National Societies or any Governmental Organizations. We are just a research group serves our community.

We are planning to make all our research plan active by funding the research needs and increasing the supervisors.

You are very welcome to be one of our active members by joining our research plan "Research Projects and Small Research"

We are also seeking for an alliance to share the expertise and to serve the community of the Geotechnical and infrastructure research.

We are not a competitor to any research group in Egypt or Overseas! We are a supporter of them all!

All researchers and research groups just need the world to be better.

Please cooperate with us, join our committees, submit your research proposal, ask for help and share your knowledge with SSIGE members!

PLEASE NOTE THAT, promotions for people are not evil, but it doesn't belong here. We need only the active members to participate. We don't work to promote some people or some work never, we work to help our communities only. If you want to work hard in helping your community, please join us. If not, please don't join.!
