Insights into the behaviour of geotechnical structures through field observations

Professor William Powrie

The talk will present insights gained into the behaviour of a variety of geotechnical structures with reference to a number of case studies. These will be selected from:

  • measurement and analysis of temporary prop loads during the construction of the Canary Wharf and Canada Water underground stations on London’s Jubilee Line Extension
  • installation effects and post construction behaviour of embedded bored pile retaining walls in Weald and Atherfield Clays on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link at Ashford, Kent, and
  • pile-stabilised railway embankments in London and Kent.

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.
