Swiss Geotechnical Challenge

Our aim is to evaluate current practice and encourage exchange. In particular, young engineers should be encouraged to develop and refine their “engineering judgment”. The following task is based on a real, large-scale experiment. The correct answers are derived directly from the test results and compared with the submitted answers. The winning answers are those that are closest to the experimental value. The 3 participants with the best answers will receive a 3-year free membership to our GS Society. In addition, an Ipad will be raffled off among all participants. We recommend that participants leave their contact details in the form so that we can contact the winners. Participation in the “Swiss Geotechnical Challenge” is possible until January 15th, 2023 under the following link:
