Short name: Laboratory testing (TC101)

Technical Committee 101 (formerly TC-29) of the ISSMGE was founded in 1994, after the successful 1st International Symposium on the Pre-failure Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials held at Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan. It completed five terms: two with Professor F. Tatsuoka as Chairman (1994-2001), another two with Professor R. Jardine (2001-2009) and one with Profosser H. di Benedetto (2009-2013).
Technical Committee 101 covers all aspects of laboratory testing. It organised many IS, workshops, international exchanges and created the gBishop lectureh.

You will be welcome if you want to participate in activities organized by the ongoing TC (2013-).

Prof. Junichi Koseki, Chair
Prof. Lyesse Laloui, Vice Chair
  Dr. Erdin Ibraim, Secretary

Terms of Reference for TC101

• To promote co-operation and exchange of information concerning research and developments in advanced laboratory geotechnical testing, including apparatus, techniques, data acquisition and interpretation.

• To encourage the application of advanced laboratory testing in research; in integrated site characterisation studies; and in ground modelling.

• To explore how advanced testing can be used most constructively in practical geotechnical engineering.

• To advance the above aims through collaboration with specialists working in laboratory and field testing, sampling, theoretical and numerical analysis, and in project engineering and full scale observation. This will involve close liaison with other ISSMGE Technical Committees.
