BGA Launches its Contribution to the ISSMGE Time Capsule Project
The ISSMGE Time Capsule Project (TCP) has the following aims:
- To bring together some of the collective experience of their member societies and technical committees in an accessible way for broader geotechnical community, and enable positive and uplifting conversations across the individual membership, in a challenging time for all of us.
- To assist the current and future generation of geotechnical engineers with a road map that helps them access the past, present and future in geotechnical engineering, globally, and stir their collective curiosity.
- To provide a platform for the up-and-coming cohort of geotechnical engineers to stand for, and to tell the story of their member society/ technical committee, and in this way take on the leadership of addressing the challenges of the communities of the future.
The initial BGA contribution can be found on this link.
BGA Chair David Toll said ‘At this stage it represents an unstructured, rather eclectic list of contributions. We appreciate there are key areas of UK contributions to geotechnical engineering that are not yet represented. We will add to this as we gain more contributions and provide some structure to it as it grows.’
The contributions include pieces on key British geotechnical figures, including Dr Leonard Cooling, Sir Alec Skempton and Professor John Burland
