The British Geotechnical Association (BGA) is pleased to announce that the title of the 61st Rankine Lecture will be 'Constitutive Modelling in Computational Geomechanics'. The lecture will be delivered by Professor John Carter of the University of Newcastle, Australia on 15 March 2023.
The Rankine Lecture is widely viewed as the most prestigious of the invited lectures in geotechnics. It commemorates William John Macquorn Rankine, Professor of Civil Engineering at Glasgow University, who was one of the first engineers in the UK to make a significant contribution to soil mechanics. He is best known for his theory for the earth pressure on retaining walls.

The Rankine Dinner will be held after the lecture. Bookings for the dinner will open shortly.
