Tasmania Chapter

Geotechnical Practitioner of the Year 2010 and Civil Engineer of the Year 2011

Andrew Leventhal

Andrew’s presentation will cover:

  • Salient features and “take-away” lessons from some of the geotechnical projects selected from his portfolio over the last 4 decades;
  • Background to the development of the Landslide Risk Management framework for Australia, dealing more with the challenges and issues in bringing the framework to fruition than specifically the guidelines themselves; and
  • Particular (and dare it be said) novel applications and challenging geotechnical responses, and their interpretation, for a current project relating to management of the Main Southern Railway south of Sydney during underground longwall mining, whilst permitting safe operation of the railway together with unimpeded mining.

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.
