Every October 2, geotechnical engineers celebrate the birthday of Karl Terzaghi, generally considered to be the father of soil mechanics. So how will you celebrate this year? Need some ideas?
- The Geo-Institute will be hosting a live event at 2pm EDT. Join ASCE President K.N. “Guna” Gunalan as he reflects on Terzaghi and the impact on his career. Free registration here.
- The Geoengineer.org has posted some audio of Terzaghi. Most of us have seen photos of him, but have you heard him?
- Watch an old video of Terzaghi, his wife, and friends on vacation. It’s like taking a time machine!
- Or search back through previous GeoPrac.net posts on Karl Terzaghi including Terzaghi Award Lectures at Geo-Congress, and other commemorations of his birthdays including some of my favorite Terzaghi quotes!
Happy KTB everybody!
