Yorkshire Geotechnical Group summer seminar: Geotechnical failures, Leeds

About this event

The Yorkshire Geotechnical Group's one-day summer seminar on geotechnical failures will include presentations from legal, insurance and client and design professionals, highlighting the ownership of geotechnical risk, liability, dispute resolution, and forensic geotechnics.

Numerous case histories including Carsington Dam, Heathrow Express Tunnel, Gorkha Earthquake (Nepal) and Hatfield railway slip, will be presented to illustrate the implications of failures. Speakers will look at the lessons learnt in order to benefit the next generation, and how the future of design and asset management will be influenced.
