GCG‘s Jackie Skipper and Imperial College London PhD student Justyna Edgar’s paper on the Harwich Formation of the London basin is now available online. The Harwich Formation, a thin but highly variable group of clays, silts, sands, gravels and occasional cemented layers, has presented many engineering problems in the past. This paper will hopefully assist identification & remediation of risks in the future.
The paper is part of a Special Volume celebrating the life & work of the wonderful Chris King, who worked with many of us at GCG, and contains many other interesting papers related to his work https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0016787820300134
Included is ‘Some applications of King’s London Clay divisions to geotechnical engineering practice’ by Dr Jamie Standing of Imperial College (and a GCG Associate).
