It was a privilege for GCG to have contributed to the success of the 11th International Symposium of Field Monitoring in Geomechanics (ISFMG) 2022 held in Imperial College London.
Senior Partner and a Founder of GCG, Professor Lord Robert Mair, gave the final keynote lecture on “Fibre optic strain measurement for field monitoring of soil-structure interaction”.
Professor Jamie Standing, a GCG Associate, gave another keynote lecture on “Understanding ground and structural response to tunnelling through interpretation of monitoring data”.
Senior Partner Dr Chris Menkiti presented a paper titled “Pore pressure monitoring for underground infrastructure: lessons from large-scale field trails for Crossrail”; the paper was co-authored by Associate Director Dr Phil Smith and Mike Black (formerly of Crossrail).
Associate Director Dr Michael Wan chaired the Technical Session on “Soil Moisture and Pore Pressure”.
GCG was also a Coffee Break Sponsor of the symposium.
Dr Wan and Prof Standing were also part of the Local Organising Committee of the symposium.
We congratulate the symposium organising committee for delivering a great event, bringing together a diverse group including manufacturers, installers, researchers, contractors, practitioners, and employers. We recognise the leadership and vision of the Chairman of the organising committee, Dr Andrew Ridley.
All the symposium papers will be available for access (free of charge) in the Online Library of the ISSMGE website in due course.
