PRESENTED BY Fred Baynes
Experienced practitioners throughout the world are concerned that many of the sophisticated engineering geological studies that are currently being carried out exhibit a lack of understanding of the fundamental principles of engineering geology.
To counter this trend, a working group of IAEG Commission 25, is attempting to establish Guidelines to provide succinct, practical, accessible and authoritative advice on how to create effective Engineering Geological Models for use on projects. These Guidelines are aimed at practitioners from around the world involved in projects ranging from investigating single storey dwellings to constructing a major piece of infrastructure or carrying out a regional study for planning purposes.
The background, progress and interim findings of Commission 25 will be presented and the key messages of the Guidelines will be illustrated with both practical and theoretical examples from a variety of projects.
