Workshop of the ICOLD Technical Committee on Dykes, Paris, 21-22 January 2020

CT Digues

On 21 and 22 January, the core group of the Technical Committee (TC) on dikes (chaired by Rémy Tourment) of the International Commission on Large Dams (ICOLD) held a very productive workshop in Paris, in the premises of the ICOLD, to work on one of its deliverables: the dam-dikes intercomparison report. The aim of this report is to increase and facilitate the sharing of knowledge and to optimize its production between these two types of hydraulic structures.

Des progrès significatifs ont pu être fait sur la plupart des chapitres de ce rapport (listés plus bas) et ainsi pu préparer les sessions de travail de l’ensemble du CT qui auront lieu lors de la prochaine réunion annuelle de la CIGB, qui se tient en avril prochain à New Delhi. 

A noter la présence parmi les participants d’un collègue australien qui a fait le déplacement spécifiquement pour participer au workshop, ce qui démontre le fort intérêt suscité par les travaux menés au sein du CT. Deux jours de labeur intense, mais également possibilité de profiter de la compagnie de chacun et de faire découvrir à nos collègues étrangers la tradition de la galette des rois, en compagnie du Secrétaire Général et du personnel de la CIGB. Et pour que la Provence ne soit pas en reste, le deuxième jour nous avons remplacé la galette parisienne par un gâteau des rois bien de chez nous. 

Au programme travail donc, mais aussi ambiance conviviale, comme le montre la photo (crédit photo Nathalie Schauner).
