David Toll is Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering at the University of Durham, UK. He is Course Director for the MSc programmes in Engineering Geology and Geo-Environmental Engineering and also teaches Geotechnical Engineering, Geology and Surveying on the undergraduate MEng course in Engineering. His research interests lie in the application of knowledge-based systems (KBS), databases and computer control systems in geotechnical engineering. The KBS work has particularly focused on interpretation of site investigation data. He is closely involved in the GeotechniCAL project, a major UK project to develop CAL materials for the geotechnical engineering curriculum within civil engineering BEng/MEng degrees. He has developed the TRIAX computer control system for stress path testing which is now in use in research laboratories across Europe. He is also involved in experimental research into the behaviour of tropical and other weakly bonded soils, including their behaviour in unsaturated conditions. This work has included testing of laterites, calcretes, pulverised fuel ash and artificially bonded soils.
