University of Minnesota 66th Annual Geotechnical Engineering Conference

February 23, 2018

This is the 66th offering of the University of Minnesota Geotechnical Engineering Conference. The Planning Committee, whose members represent the contracting industry, government agencies, the University, and consulting engineers, has developed a program offering technical information and discussion on current topics for the geotechnical engineering community. Topics at the conference will cover environmental protection with geosynthetics, Paul-Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion, design and properties of helical piles and anchors, advancement of USACE seepage barrier wall contracts, knowledge gained from the Bingham Canyon slide, use of wicking geotextiles to improve roadways, and recent case histories. The conference provides a forum to interact with peers, meet specialty contractors, and hear researchers and practitioners discuss theory and application of geomechanics. Civil engineers, architects, planners, contractors, and geologists with an interest in geotechnical engineering will benefit by attending this conference.
