20 March, 5.30pm. The Great Hall, Sherfield Building, Imperial College London
The 59th Rankine Lecture will be given by National Technical University of Athens professor of soil mechanics and dynamics George Gazetas.
The British Geotechnical Association’s Rankine Lecture is held annually and 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.
