Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Being Soil Mechanics a Geotechnical topic, shouldn't this forum appear within the Geotechnical Engineers Group as oppose to the Structural Engineers? Just a reflexion. Regards.

RE: Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

You are probably correct - but we have learned to live with it as we have with many things that structural types like to push us into (LRFD for example).

It is probably a throw back to the early days of the site (I was first on in 2003 or so and it was like this then).  Most geotechs check the structural site too so are aware of this . . .

RE: Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

I think you are right...but then I don't know the difference between geotechnical and soils.

RE: Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Thanks guys.

RE: Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Yes, Mike - it has been 10 years . . . gave me something to do in the off hours when I worked in India and has stayed with me since . . .

RE: Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Your suggestion has reached the attention of site management, and your wish has been answered.
