Professor Christophe Gaudin, Associate Professor Britta Bienen and Winthrop Professor Mark Cassidy have been awarded the Geotechnical Research Medal, by the Institution of Civil Engineers, for their paper:
Gaudin, C., Bienen, B. and Cassidy, M.J. (2011). Investigation of the potential of bottom water jetting to ease spudcan extraction in soft clay, Geotechnique, 61(1): 1043-1054.
The award was founded following a bequest by the late A.W. Bishop, which provided the die for the medal. The medal is awarded annually to the author(s) of the best contribution in the field of research in geotechnical engineering published by the Institution in the previous year.
The medal will be presented to the authors at an awards ceremony being held in October at the Institution of Civil Engineers, UK.
