Professor Jardine’s keynote will be entitled Researching the Behaviour of Piles Driven in Chalk. It will describe streams of research undertaken by a team from Imperial College London in collaboration with industrial partners to investigate the response to loading of the driven pile foundations that may be employed to support jacket, tripod or even floating wind-turbine support structures founded in chalk.

Richard Jardine is Professor of Geomechanics and Deputy Head of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial College London. Professor Jardine is a Royal Academy of Engineering Fellow and gave the British Geotechnical Association’s 56th Rankine Lecture in 2016. He has published over 240 papers and sits on six International Committees covering advanced laboratory experimentation to offshore Geotechnics and has delivered multiple international keynote lectures over the last decade. He has won 17 National and International research prizes, acted as a visiting Professor in Singapore, Japan and China and consulted on many major international engineering projects.

Engineering in Chalk is a major two-day international conference organized by the British Geotechnical Association (BGA) with support from the Engineering Group of the Geological Society (EGGS), and will be held on 17th and 18th September 2018 at Imperial College in London.
