Practical applications of waves to measure soil properties and ethics will be the topics at the GeoMO 2011 Conference, hosted by Missouri University of Science and Technology on Friday, May 6. The conference will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall on the university’s campus.
Dr. Vincent Drnevich, civil engineering professor at Purdue University, will present. He is recognized internationally for his research on the engineering properties of soils and concrete, particularly as measured by stress wave and electromagnetic wave propagation. He has received numerous awards, including the American Society of Civil Engineers Huber Award and Norman Medal, the ASTM Hogentogler Award and Woodland G. Shockley Award, the American Society for Engineering Education George Wadlin Award, and Chi Epsilon Harold T. Larson and James M. Robbins Awards.
The fee of $150 covers course notes and a luncheon. Attendees will receive six professional development hours (PDHs).
