The following special lectures were given at the context of Geo-Congress 2022 (Charlotte, North Carolina | March 20-23 2022). All lectures can be found in the media gallery below.
This lectureship was established by the Soil Mechanics and & Foundations Division (present Geo-Institute) of the Society by the solicitation of gift from the many friends and admirers of Karl Terzaghi, Hon.M.ASCE. It was instituted by the Board of Direction on October 10, 1960.
“Bio-mediated Geotechnics for Hazard Mitigation, Environmental Protection and Infrastructure Construction”
Edward Kavazanjian, Jr., PhD., P.E., D.GE, Dist. M. ASCE, NAE
Director, Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics
Regents Professor and Ira A. Fulton Professor of Geotechnical Engineering Arizona State University
For significant contributions to earthquake engineering, the design of waste containment systems and in leading the emerging field of bio-geotechnical engineering.
This award was established in 1999 by the Geo-Institute of the Society in honor of Ralph B. Peck, Dist.M.ASCE. Funds to support this award were donated by the Geo-professional Business Association GBA (former ASFE).
“Site Response analysis: Does it Work?”
Ellen Rathje, Ph.D., P.E., F.ASCE
Janet S. Cockrell Chair, The University of Texas Austin
For her advancements to seismic site response analysis through case histories, her development of case histories to inform regional seismic assessments and her leadership promoting the electronic publishing of case history data.
This award was established by the Geotechnical Engineering Division (present Geo-Institute) of the Society in memory of Professor H. Bolton Seed, Hon.M.ASCE. It was officially instituted by action of the Board of Direction on October 23, 1993 and was funded by friends and colleagues of Professor Seed and the U.S National Society Endowment Fund.
“Evaluating the effects of liquefaction”
Jonathan D. Bray, PhD., P.E., F.ASCE
Faculty Chair in Earthquake Engineering Excellence, UC Berkeley
For advancements in geotechnical earthquake engineering, including liquefaction ground motions, seismic site response, seismic slope stability, soil-structure-interaction (SSI) and surface fault rupture.
The ASCE Geo-Institute (G-I) has established a Lecture in recognition of Professor Carl L. Monismith’s contribution to Pavement Engineering. Professor Monismith’s teaching and research career in pavement technology, at the University of California Berkeley, spans more than 50 years. Throughout this period, he has mentored numerous graduate students who have disseminated advances in pavement technology around the world.
“Unbound aggregate pavement layers-Dynamic loading behavior and its characterization”
Erol Tutumluer, Ph.D., M.ASCE
Abel Bliss Professor in Engineering
Paul F.Kent Endaved Faculty Scholar
For unique studying practical implications of geotechnical/pavement foundation issues in pavement design and performance and work on advanced and mechanistic based modeling of geo-mechanical and pavement systems.
