Deformation monitoring paper awarded Halcrow prize

RICHARD BASSETT of the University of London, Chris Rasmussen of ITM and Dr James Kimmance have won one of the ICE's annual Halcrow prizes for their paper 'An automated electrolevel deformation monitoring system for tunnels'.

The paper, presented to the ICE in 1999, describes the Bassett Convergence System (BCS), an automated deformation monitoring system for tunnels. The system underwent field trials in a tunnel on London Underground's Northern Line and has since been used on the Jubilee Line Extension and on major tunnelling projects worldwide.

Three Halcrow prizes are awarded each year to the authors of papers published in any of the ICE's journals.

To be considered, papers must be on the subjects of docks and harbours or other marine works, tunnels, or hydro-electric power or power from other renewable natural sources.

The prizes will be presented at the ICE annual awards ceremony in November.
