Geotechnical


Eurocode 7 has been established as the current European standard for geotechnical engineering design. The next generation of geotechnical engineers (current graduates and young researchers) will use EC7 on a regular basis. This workshop aims to encourage young geotechnical engineers to engage with the new European safety codes and design methodologies. Talks by international experts involved in the development of EC7 will be followed by presentations from designers about their experience with EC7 compliant design.

Speakers:

  • Professor Brian Simpson, Arup Fellow, a principal of Arup Geotechnics & an Honorary Professor, University of Nottingham, UK
  • Professor Helmut F. Schweiger, Head of the Computational Geotechnics Group at the Institute for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Graz University of Technology, Austria
  • Professor Giuseppe Scarpelli, Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Ancona, Italy and national representative at the European committee for Eurocode 7 on geotechnical design
  • Professor Christos Vrettos, Professor of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany

Registration for the event is free, however we require a confirmation of attendance for catering purposes. Please send an email to georgios.katsigiannis.12@ucl.ac.uk to register.
