Design Issues for Large Earth Structures: Stress, Deformation, FOS and Liquefaction (Recorded)
Recorded Webinar of Design Issues for Large Earth Structures: Stress, Deformation, FOS and Liquefaction
“Static and seismic liquefaction induced damages of earth structures” is a challenging topic to geotechnical and earthquake engineering field. A case study and research based lecture will be delivered by a prominent Geotechnical Engineer from CANADA.
Large earth structures such as embankment dams and industrial waste facilities are very high to extreme hazard structures. Design, construction and operation of these facilities requires higher standard of care and the application of state-of-the-art technologies and best practices. The 2-D FOS calculations are undertaken to design these structures, With the advancement of computation tools and numerous case histories of failure of dams, levees and waste structures assessment of risks for stress-deformation behaviour and liquefaction potential of both the earth structure and foundation must be undertaken are some of the key considerations for the design and operations of these structures.
Host: Mohammad Al-Mamun, M.S.Eng. P.Eng.
Brief Bio of Mohammad (Mamun) Al-Mamun :
Mohammad (Mamun) Al-Mamun is a Geotechnical Engineer with Tetra Tech Canada Inc’s Calgary Geotechnical and Construction Services Group (within Prairie Engineering). He received his B. Sc. in Civil Engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and M.Sc. Eng. in Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Calgary, Canada. Mr. Mamun has 20 years of progressive experience in geotechnical, geoenvironmental, and infrastructure engineering and led multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder teams that delivered complex and challenging design and construction projects. His areas of expertise include design, construction management, project coordination, QA/QC, preparation of construction specifications, regulatory compliance, risk management of civil infrastructure projects. He managed large site investigation and foundation characterizations programs including laboratory and in-situ testing for shallow and deep foundations. Mr. Mamun worked as the engineer of record (EOR-geotechnical) for large tailings dams and conducted independent dam safety review (DSR) for extreme consequence dams (tailings dams and water dams).
Mr. Mamun leads the proposal preparation for various infrastructure, dam safety, and mining projects; manages and mentors technical staff; and participates and contributes in business development and strategic planning.
Mr. Mamun is an active member of the Canadian Dam Association (CDA). He chaired technical committees, working groups and organized several workshops and conferences for CDA.
