This year the BGA committee has decided that the publication "Knappett, J.A. & Madabhushi, S.P.G., (2009), Influence of axial load on lateral pile response in liquefiable soils, Part I: Physical modelling, Geotechnique, Vol.59, Issue 7, pp 571-581" should win the BGA medal. The award was made at the BGA Annual Conference held at the Institution of Civil Engineers.
Dr Knappett is a Lecturer at University of Dundee (and a former student at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge). Dr Madabhushi is a Reader in Geotechnical Engineering at University of Cambridge. The award winning publication forms a part of the book titled "Design of Pile Foundations in Liquefiable Soils" authored by Madabhushi, Knappett and Haigh and published by Imperial College Press in 2009 http://www.icpress.co.uk/engineering/p628.html.
