About the Conference

62nd Annual Geotechnical Engineering Conference

This is the 62nd 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 the recent advances in slope stability assessment, analytical element method for groundwater modeling, inflow rates in tunnels, transient seepage, deep foundations for slope stability, anchored earth retention, 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.
