2011 Symposium – Coastal and Marine Geotechnics: Foundations for Trade

Various speakers

The need to design safe foundations for offshore and near shore structures has generated greater interest in coastal and marine geotechnics, today an important element in geotechnical engineering. Achieving safe foundation design requires continuing evolution and discussion of design practices and construction techniques by geotechnical and marine professionals.

The Symposium will present state-of-the-art practices, innovative technologies, new research results and case histories in the field of coastal and marine geotechnics. The Symposium will bring together the broad community of marine and geo-professionals working in offshore and near shore geotechnical design. The goal of this symposium is to provide professional engineers, researchers, specialist contractors, regulators, educators, and engineering students the opportunity to meet and share their knowledge and experiences in coastal and marine geotechnics.

Engineers Australia members participating in AGS technical sessions can record attendance on their personal CPD logs. Members should refer to Engineers Australia CPD policy for details on CPD types, requirements and auditing guidelines.
