Tutumluer to Speak at International Conference
Professor Erol Tutumluer will deliver a keynote address at the 2nd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (ICTG), presented at Hokkaido University in Sapporo, Japan, Sept. 10-12. Tutumluer will speak on "Sustainable Pavement Construction Utilizing Engineered Unbound Aggregate Layers."
A member of the faculty since 1996, Tutumluer teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in transportation engineering, including transportation soils engineering, subgrade soil and aggregate behavior and stabilization, pavement analysis and design, and airport facilities design. He is the Paul Fraser Kent Faculty Scholar and Director of International Programs for the department.
Considered the premier conference in transportation geotechnics, ICTG is being organized by the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering and the Japanese Geotechnical Society. Expected to attract about 250 attendees, the conference will feature seven keynote lectures by prominent experts in the field, 140 oral presentations and three pre-conference workshops.
