Event details

York Society of Engineers Lecture

Energy from Waste facilities involving waste incineration have been constructed in the United Kingdom in the last few years. The environment for the Design Engineers and their Clients has been extremely challenging, based upon fast track programmes and the PFI model, making early investment in the ground works strategy problematic.

These structures include deep waste bunkers (up to 15 metres deep) which require good geotechnical and geo-environmental knowledge and design, with groundwater being a significant influence on the design and construction approach.

This presentation focusses on a number of these schemes where differing ground and groundwater conditions were evident, which lead to the requirement for different groundwater control and construction techniques to be adopted.

Tea and coffee from 7pm.
