About this event

Entries for the presentation competition were invited from young geotechnical engineers (aged 30 or under on 31 December 2016). Presentations may be on any topic dealing with engineering behaviour of the ground, whether it is a construction/design project or research. The aim of the competition is to encourage young engineers to prepare and give a technical presentation. The work does not have to be solely that of the author, but the author's part should be stated.

Up to six finalists will each give a 10-minute presentation, which should emphasise the geotechnical aspects of the work. There will be approximately five minutes allowed after each presentation for questions from the floor. A panel of three professional engineers will judge the competition. There are also cash prizes (kindly donated by the evening's sponsors) available for competition winners. All entrants are encouraged to produce a poster to exhibit on the evening of the final and a cash prize will be awarded to the best poster chosen by the judges.

Organised by the Yorkshire Geotechnical Group (YGG). The YGG request all business leaders to encourage younger colleagues to contribute and attend this excellent event.

Following the presentations there will be a talk on the Environmental impacts from dewatering and groundwater control by Martin Preene, Preene Groundwater Consultancy.

The evening kindly sponsored by TSP.

Prizes kindly sponsored by Byland Engineering Limited, Donaldson Associates and Preene Groundwater Consulting.
