Revised date for Rankine lecture (tea, sherry and dinner too)

THIS YEAR'S Rankine lecture will take place on 21 March, not 14 March as announced in Ground Engineering's blue geotechnical diary booklet published in October.

Professor Heinz Brandl from the Technical University of Vienna will use the prestigious Rankine platform to speak on the challenges of environmental geotechnics.

Professor Brandl, vice chairman of the ISSMGE for Europe, is a consummate continentalstyle geotechnical engineer - a highly respected academic with extensive experience of practical projects.

He is expected to cover areas including geothermal engineering, foundations and tunnels, landfills and high retaining structures.

As usual, the event takes place at Imperial College, London, starting with tea at 4pm.The lecture, which is open to all, begins at 5.30pm, followed by a sherry reception and dinner. To obtain tickets for the dinner see the BGA flyer with this issue or email a. bracegirdle@gcg. co. uk. Book early - the 400-seat dinner has sold out for the past three years.
