A paper authored by two School of Civil and Environmental Engineering researchers is one of the most significant of the year published in the Canadian Geotechnical Journal, according to the publication’s editors.
The paper, a 2014 Editor’s Choice selection, will be featured on the journal’s website and permanently available for free and open download.
“This means the journal's editors consider the paper among the most important and high-caliber entries it has published in 2014,” said Fawad Niazi, a research engineer in the School and co-author of the work along with Professor Paul Mayne. Niazi also recently completed his doctoral degree in geosystems engineering in CEE.
In selecting the paper — "Axial pile response of bidirectional O-cell loading from modified analytical elastic solution and downhole shear wave velocity" — the journal’s editors cited the importance of the research as well as its potential impact.
The Editor’s Choice selections are designed to promote maximum awareness for such work, editor Ian Moore said.
