Dr. Edward Kavazanjian, Jr., director of The Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics at Arizona State University, is the 2016 Buchanan Lecturer. Kavazanjian’s lecture is titled “Bio-Geo-Alchemy: Biogeotechnical Carbonate Precipitation for Hazard Mitigation and Ground Improvement.”

The Buchanan Lecture is held in honor of Dr. Spencer J. Buchanan’s life and legacy at Texas A&M University. Buchanan dedicated his life to the service and education of others. He was a Texas A&M Distinguished Professor, a founder of the Bryan Boy’s Club and a world leader in geotechnical engineering. Every year the Buchanan Lecture is held in his honor, aiming to educate and motivate present-day geotechnical engineers. The lecture is organized by Dr. Jean-Louis Briaud, distinguished professor and holder of the Spencer J. Buchanan Chair in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M. This year the lecture is sponsored by Fugro Consultants, Inc.

Also on the agenda is Dr. Donald A. Bruce, president of Geosystems, L.P., who will be presenting his 2015 Terzaghi Lecture "The Evolution of Specialty Geotechnical Construction Techniques."

The Terzaghi Lecture was established by the Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1960. This lectureship is an annual award coupled with a lecture that addresses modern research in the field of geotechnical engineering. Lecturers are recognized for their outstanding and sustainable contributions to geotechnical engineering that can be utilized in the United States.

The lectures will take place in the Brazos Amphitheater at the College Station Hilton starting at 2 p.m. on Oct 14.
