  • I assume this prize is named after Dr. Fleming who was the Technical Director for Cementation Piling and Foundations in the early 70's: one of a dying breed, even then, who would stand his corner, take on anyone, and show an excellent fundamental, theoretical and yet very practical understanding of difficult geo-technical and foundation problems and provide their solutions.
