Please join us for a special young members tunnelling event! We have two amazing talks lined up:

Alena Conrads

Presentation: Maintenance scheduling of cutting tools in soft ground mechanised tunnelling considering uncertainties in wear prediction

Alena completed her PHD at the Institute for Tunnelling and Construction Management at the Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany, under the guidance of Prof. Thewes. Her research focused on process simulation of logistic and maintenance processes of mechanised tunnelling projects. She was also a key driver behind the founding of the German ITA young members chapter STUVE-YEP. Alena is now part of the tunnelling division of Wayss & Freytag and in October 2019 began work on the Cross River Rail project in Brisbane as an project engineer for the TBM tunnels.













Jiwoo Ahn

Presentation: Numerical modelling of the Sharaan Desert Resort

Jiwoo is a Geotechnical Engineer at PSM and has been involved in a variety civil engineering and mining projects both locally and internationally. Jiwoo is currently working on the Cross River Rail Project where he is providing construction phase design services. His presentation will focus on the numerical modelling for a luxury hotel in Saudi Arabia – The Sharaan Desert Resort.








The event will be a great networking opportunity and will conclude with a couple of drinks at the pub.

The event will also be streamed live online for young members located outside Queensland.
