Scotland’s poster boy wins place at international geotechnical conference

University of Edinburgh PhD student David Connolly is celebrating double success after his win at a regional competition helped him to secure a place representing the UK at an international geotechnical conference.

Connolly’s poster on ground vibration isolation on high speed rail lines beat off stiff competition from 10 other entrants at the annual poster competition hosted jointly by the ICE Scottish Geotechnical Group and the Central Scotland Regional Group of the Geological Society.

Connolly was presented with an engraved trophy and a copy of Offshore Geotechnical Engineering after his poster was selected as the winner out of others which covered topics including seismic soil structure interaction and the caissons of the Forth Replacement Crossing.

As a result of winning the competition, he has also been nominated by the British Geotechnical Association to represent the UK at the 5th International Young Geotechnical Engineers’ Conference in Paris in 2013.
