The International Society for Soil Mechanics, Geotechnical Engineering Technical Committee TC102, and the Australian Geomechanics Society invite participation in ISC’5, the 5th International Conference on Geotechnical and Geophysical Site Characterisation.

Embankment Prediction Symposium – Call for EOI

Are you interested in the application of numerical methods to the prediction of embankment deformations and the behaviour of footings?

Yes? Well you may also be interested in the following invitation:

The Australian Research Council-funded Centre of Excellence for Geotechnical Science and Engineering (CGSE) invites practising engineers and academics to make and submit predictions of the performance of an embankment constructed using prefabricated vertical drains on soft clay and/or the load-displacement response of a shallow foundation loaded to failure on soft clay.

All manner of predictions are encouraged and invited. These may range from hand drawn curves based merely on experience and engineering judgement, to the most sophisticated 3D numerical analysis incorporating advanced geotechnical models.

Field observations and the time history of the embankment behaviour, as well as the various predictions of that behaviour will be presented and discussed in a special Prediction Symposium to be held in Newcastle, Australia, on 12 and 13 of September 2016.

If you might be interested in submitting a prediction please advise
