About C W Lovell
-

Professor Emeritus C. William Lovell's career of teaching, research, consulting and practice has extended over a period of 45 years. His research interests are broad and varied including: soft rocks (shales), compaction and compacted properties, soil fabric and pore size distribution, slope stability and erosion, cold weather problems, pavements, and most recently uses of waste materials in geotechnical engineering. He has supervised almost fifty theses.
Prof. Lovell is an active individual who serves Purdue and the community in numerous ways. The establishment of this Distinguished Lecture is one such effort.


About the C W Lovell Distinguished Lecture

-

Beginning in 2003, the C W Lovell Distinguished Lecture series was established through the generosity of Prof. Lovell, who expressed an interest in creating a lecture series at Purdue that will have staying power -- one in which a track record of scholarship is clearly established. Thus, each year, the Geotechnical group at Purdue has invited lecturers to Purdue with outstanding accomplishments in Geotechnical engineering research. The lecture series creates an excellent opportunity for our graduate students to meet some of the most important names in Geotechnical engineering in person at Purdue.
