This volume contains the proceedings of a major two-day international conference on Engineering in Chalk, organised by the British Geotechnical Association (BGA), with support from the Engineering Group of the Geological Society (EGGS). Bringing together the knowledge and experience gained in the last three decades the papers in this collection present research and case histories to provide a definitive up to date perspective on a wide range of technical themes relating to Engineering in Chalk.

The papers reflect the themes of the conference which include

  • earthworks 
  • foundations and piling 
  • geological hazards 
  • offshore engineering 
  • site investigation/characterisation 
  • in situ and laboratory testing
  • tunnelling 
  • case histories of construction and engineering
  • water and the environment
  • future engineering issues.
This volume covers a wide range of topics which are of direct relevance to all who work within the broad field of geotechnical engineering, including consultants contractors, academics, materials suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and the owners and operators of infrastructure, and structures and facilities.
