During the last 25 years the geotechnical community has witnessed many changes in design and construction practices. This lecture will give a personal perspective on these changes by reference to direct experience from a number of roles in the geotechnical engineering industry.
Specific areas of focus will be the development of soil nailing, deep foundation construction and design and risk management. These areas will be discussed from the facets of design analysis, specification, technology and human interface and how they have impacted on the competences and capabilities of the geotechnical community.
The lecture will cover:
