Culverts and Sewers – Buried but not forgotten

While largely out of sight and neglected for decades, the deteriorated state of our buried pipe infrastructure is now attracting considerable attention. An overview of a number of recent studies is presented, featuring both experimental and computational work to explore soil-pipe interaction and the performance of new, deteriorated, and repaired pipe systems. The presentation starts …more

Systems engineering the design and operations of municipal solid waste landfills to minimize contamination of groundwater

This talk discusses the need to adopt a systems engineering approach to the design and operations of municipal solid waste landfills. It discusses how the interaction between different components affects the performance of the entire systems and how, due to this interaction, the performance of the systems as a whole is much great than the …more

Stiffness at Small Strain – Research and Practice

The rapid development of computing power and of numerical modelling software over the past forty years has made sophisticated analysis of geotechnical problems accessible to most practising engineers. Typically computer packages now offer a wide range of constitutive models, which the design engineer needs to choose between, and then obtain parameters for. For those structures …more
