International Conferences on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering-Vision of Prof. Dr. Shamsher Prakash


Soils are primarily natural deposits and variation in their characteristics, even within distances of less than a few yards, makes geotechnical engineering challenging. Unlike many other engineering fields, professional judgment plays a key role in the design of geotechnical engineering projects. Dr. Shamsher Prakash envisioned that civil engineers can develop sound professional judgment only by learning from project performance. He believed that sharing knowledge gained from every geotechnical engineering project is the best way to train engineers. With this in mind, he organized in 1984 the first international conference of its kind on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering.

Engineers who attended the first case histories conference, and those who could not attend, realized the unique value of the information exchange and demanded more conferences like the first one. The demand continued to grow and Dr. Prakash organized Seven highly recognized conferences on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering. These conferences have contributed a tremendous wealth of knowledge for the profession to use and to train future engineers. This work lead to the establishment of the International Journal of Geo-engineering Case Histories in 2004 with Dr. Prakash as the Honorary Editor.

Dr. Prakash’s name is now synonymous with case histories in geotechnical engineering. The seventh case histories conference is likely to be the last conference which Dr. Shamsher Prakash Chaired. However, these conferences, and the wealth of information are now available because of Dr. Prakash’s vision, and his legacy will live forever.  Missouri University of Science and Technology is providing all the papers presented in these seven volumes of the conference proceedings for use at no cost.

The only way to remember Dr. Prakash and make his legacy eternal is to use the information in the proceedings to design and construct projects which advance civilization while keeping the environment and public health, safety, and comfort as the main focus.
