Mr Wood will present on the design and construction control of compacted cohesive fills.
In his presentation, he will demonstrate the importance of air content as the most effective control parameter for ensuring that cohesive fills are compacted in the 'wet of optimum' state necessary to control volume change and ensure stability over the design lifetime. The importance of achieving full compaction will also be described, as well as the pitfalls of using 'Proctor' type laboratory tests. Specifications based on Relative Compaction and Optimum Moisture Content will be examined and recommendations made for a revised approach that ensures best practicable lifetime performance of compacted cohesive fills whilst minimizing construction effort, cost and rework. Speaker: Ray Wood graduated with a Master of Arts in Engineering from the University of Cambridge in 1979, and also holds a Master of Business Administration. He has worked with Fugro since graduation, gaining experience in all aspects of geotechnical engineering for onshore and offshore structures, as well as driving innovation in the fields of engineering geophysics, deep foundations, in-situ testing and specialist undisturbed soil sampling and advanced laboratory testing. Most recently he has been leading Fugro's advances in the field of compacted cohesive fills. During his career he has been based in UK, Hong Kong and the US and has worked in many countries in Europe, Asia and the Americas. He was based in Hong Kong from 1994 to 2004 as Managing Director of Fugro's site investigation and instrumentation business in the region. He is currently Fugro's Global Director for Geotechnical Consulting, based in San Francisco, California.
