GCG’s Associate Prof. Jamie Standing delivered his inaugural lecture at Imperial College London

Congratulations to GCG’s Associate, Prof. Jamie Standing, who delivered his inaugural lecture at Imperial College London, on 22 February 2023, titled ‘Ground Engineering: foresights, insights and backsights’.

An in-person event, which attracted a diverse audience, Jamie’s lecture discussed how Ground Engineering is a vital component of Civil Engineering, as most structures lie on or within the ground and need to do so safely and without excessive displacements. A key focus of the presentation was understanding how the ground will respond to activities, such as loading from foundations and embankments or unloading from tunnelling, excavations and cutting, and the challenges this presents.
