The Fleming Award Competition is held annually to commemorate the life and work of Dr Ken Fleming and to recognise excellence in the practical application of geotechnics in a project or a part of a project.

The Fleming Award is awarded by BGA to the Project Team which most demonstrates excellence in geotechnical design & construction. There will be an emphasis on teamwork across the different disciplines involved in the project. Consideration will also be given to teams which are innovative.

The event will consist of presentations from the finalists, and a keynote address, followed by the award presentation.

This drinks reception has been kindly sponsored by Cementation Skanska.

Keynote Presentation by David Wright

Fibre optic sensing – A distributed monitoring technology for earthworks?

For several years, the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) at Cambridge University has been researching the potential for use of fibre optics within the civil engineering industry. More recently, Huesker have developed a manufacturing process to incorporate fibre optic cables into geogrid, forming a Sensorgrid, which has shown promising performance when tested under laboratory conditions.

This talk summarises the approach and findings of a recent trial to investigate the performance of this technology at a larger scale, under site conditions, together with concepts for future applications. The trial was designed by Jacobs and constructed at the HS2 Phase 1, C1 site by ALIGN. Funding for the trial was provided by the HS2 Learning Legacy.
