John Jaeger Memorial Award Lecture: Predicting the Mechanical Behaviour of Structured Soils

Abstract Many naturally occurring sedimentary soils and most residual soil deposits are known to possess some form of structure, which enables them to behave differently from the same material in a reconstituted state whenever subjected to mechanical loading. An important feature of the mechanical behaviour of structured soils is the occurrence of a destructuring phase …more

ESCAPING THE GOLDEN CAGE*

Learning to Practise the Art of Observational Geotechnical Engineering

Abstract The observational method is a respected and much-quoted pillar of geotechnical practice, but it appears in many guises and its application is not always clearly understood or appreciated. At its heart is the engineer’s dilemma of getting something to work safely and efficiently in the face of uncertainties. Observational geotechnical engineering is the art …more
