ICPMG 2014 - Physical Modelling in Geotechnics free pdf The 8th International Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (ICPMG2014) was organised by the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems at the University of Western Australia under the auspices of the Technical Committee 104 for Physical Modelling in Geotechnics of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering. This quadrennial conference is the traditional focal point for the physical modelling community of academics, scientists and engineers to present and exchange the latest developments on a wide range of physical modelling aspects associated with geotechnical engineering. These proceedings, together with the seven previous proceedings dating from 1988, present an inestimable collection of the technical and scientific developments and breakthroughs established over the last 25 years. These proceedings include 10 keynote lectures from scientific leaders within the physical modelling community and 160 peer-reviewed papers from 26 countries. They are organised in 14 themes, presenting the latest developments in physical modelling technology, modelling techniques and sensors, through a wide range of soil-structure interaction problems, including shallow and deep foundations, offshore geotechnics, dams and embankments, excavations and retaining structures and slope stability. Fundamental aspects of earthquake engineering, geohazards, ground reinforcements and improvements, and soil properties and behaviour are also covered, demonstrating the increasing complexity of modelling arising from state-of-the-art technological developments and increased understanding of similitude principles. A special theme on education presents the latest developments in the use of physical modelling techniques for instructing undergraduate and postgraduate students in geotechnical engineering.

About Christophe Gaudin

Christophe Gaudin is a Professorial Research Fellow at the University of Western Australia and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems. Professor Gaudin has a vast experience on geotechnical physical modelling, serving on the editorial board of the International Journal of Physical Modelling in Geotechnics, and as core member since 2006 and Chairman since 2010 of the ISSMGE's Technical Committee on Geotechnical Physical Modelling. He has authored more than 120 technical papers over the last 10 years, presenting physical modelling developments and applications for a wide range of geotechnical problems, including retaining structures, offshore anchoring systems and foundation. He has been managing the two geotechnical centrifuges at the University of Western Australia since 2003 providing innovative technical solutions for both research and industry, for which he has delivered 7 conference keynotes and has won 3 awards, including the ICE Bishop Medal. David White holds the Shell EMI Chair in Offshore Engineering at the University of Western Australia. Professor White has authored more than 180 technical papers including 8 conference keynotes, related to foundations, pipelines and anchoring. He is a strong proponent of geotechnical physical modelling, serving as Secretary of the ISSMGE's Technical Committee on Geotechnical Physical Modelling since 2005. His publications have won 6 awards, including the Telford Premium, the Bishop Medal and the BGA Prize (three times). He was named the 2011 Western Australian Early Career Scientist of the Year and his research projects have attracted 6 industry awards. Professor White acts as a consultant to industry through the Perth-based firm, Advanced Geomechanics, and he has served on the editorial boards of three journals and on two ISO standard committees.
