64th Annual Geotechnical Engineering Conference

This is the 64th offering of the University of Minnesota Geotechnical Engineering Conference. The Planning Committee, whose members represent the contracting industry, government agencies, consulting engineers, and the University, has developed a program offering technical information and discussion on current topics for the geotechnical engineering community. Topics at the conference will cover the consequences of pile driving vibrations, MnDOT’s dynamic pile driving formula, risk and reliability methods for geotechnical engineering, strength reduction method, effect of iron oxide on small strain stiffness, 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.
