The Future of Geotechnical Engineering

To be discussed in this area:

  • What’s good and should be preserved?
  • How to preserve the good features?
  • What needs to be abandoned?
  • What needs to be replaced?
  • What is cooking and how to be prepared?

This is a new corner

At times it may be controversial,
But it is always be exciting.

See the future here.
