The 2023 Australia and New Zealand Conference on Geomechanics (ANZ2023) aims to connect geotechnical specialists to explore technical advances and challenges and share insights from leading specialists from across the world and our ANZ region.
Joining our industry colleagues in Cairns to present their technical papers and research were Tetra Tech Coffey specialists Raathiv Shanmuganathan, Dr. Ching Dai, Dr. Hao Shen, Prof. Harry Poulos, and Helen Chow. Presentations included:
“Design and construction of contiguous pile wall at an existing soil nail wall slope founded on soils susceptible to liquefaction” – Raathiv Shanmuganathan and Dr.Ching Dai
“Site-specific probabilistic seismic hazard analysis on Snowy 2.0 Pumped-Hydro Storage project” – Dr.Ching Dai
“Observation-informed machine learning models for real-time building, utilities, and rail damage assessments during Earth Pressure Balance (EPB) shield TBM tunnelling” – Dr. Hao Shen and Ignacio Ortega
“Scott Sloan Memorial Session: Tall building foundations – design and risk mitigation” – Prof. Harry Poulos
“Analysis of foundation settlement interaction among multiple high-rise buildings.” – Senior Geotechnical Engineer Helen Chow and Senior Consultant Prof. Harry Poulos
Raathiv Shanmuganathan Associate Geotechnical Engineer from Tetra Tech Coffey in Auckland presented the paper ‘Design and construction of a contiguous pile wall at an existing soil nail slope founded on soils susceptible to liquefaction’ which was co-written with Tetra Tech Coffey Senior Principal, Ching Dai. Their work took the audience on a deeper understanding of the technical challenges involved in the delivery of the Waikato Expressway (Hamilton Section) in New Zealand. Read more here
Senior Geotechnical Engineer Helen Chow and Senior Consultant Prof. Harry Poulos presented their technical poster at ANZ2023 on the “Analysis of foundation settlement interaction among multiple high-rise buildings.” Helen and Harry’s insights aim to address the practical problem modern day cities are facing; how to accommodate the high demand for high-rise buildings in major cities, and the challenge of the interaction of multiple foundations.
Tetra Tech Coffey was proud to be a Bronze and Scott Sloan Memorial Session sponsor!
We congratulate our colleagues for their Leading with Science® research and insights which address the geotechnical challenges in our world.
