Overview

A structure, its foundations and the surrounding ground interact with each other. Ground-structure interaction must usually be taken into account in design and this involves important interactions between specialist structural and geotechnical engineers.

During his career the speaker has encountered profound philosophical differences in approach between structural and geotechnical engineers often leading to a lack of understanding and difficulties in communication. Using case histories, this talk explores these differences in approach and the reasons for them.
