Dr. Edward Kavazanjian Jr. will present the Prakash Distinguished Lecture at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 14, in Room 125 Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall. His talk will focus on the role of desaturation in mitigating earthquake-induced soil liquefaction.
Kavazanjian is a Regents Professor and the Ira A. Fulton Professor of geotechnical engineering in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. His expertise includes geotechnical engineering for civil infrastructure systems, design and construction of waste containment systems, geotechnical earthquake engineering, the mechanical properties of solid waste, and the emerging field of biogeotechnical engineering.
The Shamser and Sally Prakash Lecture in Geotechnical Engineering was founded by Dr. Shamsher Prakash, who joined the S&T civil engineering department in 1978 as an associate professor in geotechnical engineering.
