Variability and ground ‘problems’ in engineering projects: why is the ground ‘unexpected’? Jackie Skipper Geotechnical Consulting Group
Hazards and problems in engineering projects are frequently due to natural variations in the ground – but what geological processes cause the ground to be variable? This lecture (The 2017 Glossop Medal Lecture) will look at how geological variability occurs, the engineering problems this can lead to, and how we can best predict, and manage these issues in construction projects.
7pm Saturday 5th May at The Masonic Hall, Lyme Regis.
Tickets £3 for each talk or £10 for the whole evening. Available on the door or in advance from Lyme Regis Development Trust on 01297 445021 or from the information desk on Cobb Gate Car Park.
