The Purdue Geotechnical Society was founded in May 2003 to enhance the strong bond and working relationship among alumni, faculty, students, and staff of the Geotechnical Engineering group at Purdue University for the benefit of all.
The Purdue Geotechnical Society hosted the 19th edition of the Purdue Geotechnical Workshop and the 19th G.A. Leonards Lecture on Friday, May 5, 2023 on the Purdue University campus in West Lafayette, Indiana.
The theme for the workshop, “Resilience, Sustainability and Geotechnics,” aligned with the subject of the Leonards Lecture on “Sustainability and Resiliency-Based Innovation: Research and Practices in Geoenvironmental Engineering,” given by Professor Krishna R. Reddy of the University of Illinois at Chicago. For his outstanding contributions to geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering research, education and practice, Professor Reddy has been recognized as a leader of our profession, and we are thrilled that he has accepted our invitation to give the Leonards Lecture.
The workshop consisted of a full day of technical presentations including Keynote Lectures and discussions, followed by a reception and dinner.
