Türker Mirata is a professor in the Department of Civil Engineering, Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara. Amongst other subjects like Soil Mechanics, Foundation Engineering, and Measurement of Soil Properties, he has been lecturing in Earth Structures for the past 38 years. As such, most of his research has been connected with the soil mechanics problems of embankment dams, particularly the measurement of the shear strength of unsaturated clays and gravels or rockfill material, the methods he has developed for this purpose being documented in a recently updated handbook, the pdf version of which is now available online. He has published over 47 technical papers and discussions, 20 in international journals and conference proceedings.
