The seminar will focus on fundamental principles that underlie current and anticipated developments in bio-inspired geotechnics.
This seminar introduces participants to the principles of biological processes that act in the ground, including the action of bacteria. It will discuss ways to use naturally occurring bacteria to strengthen the soil, to mitigate against earthquake-induced liquefaction and reinforce the soil. It will also explain methods inspired by biological processes to grout and enhance the soil properties with special emphasis on topics related to the Gulf region.
