Linkage International Grant to Dr Dong-Sheng Jeng

9 November 2005

Dr Dong-Sheng Jeng
, in collaboration with Canadian and Chinese researchers Prof BR Seymour, Prof M Luan and Dr F Gao, has been successful in their project entitled Progressive liquefaction within marine sediments: comparison between geo-centrifuge modelling, full-scale wave tank tests and numerical modelling.

The evaluation of wave-induced liquefaction within the marine sediment is particularly important for coastal and geotechnical engineers involved in the design of foundation around coastal structures. The proposed study will integrate the existing knowledge from the aspects of coastal and geotechnical engineering with that of overseas experts to provide coastal engineers with an effective tool for the design of foundations around marine structures. It will also assist in reducing the risk of potential environmental damage caused by failure of marine structures.

The aim of Linkage International Awards is to build links among researchers, research teams or research centres of excellence in Australia and overseas by funding extended collaborations.
