CGS-SOS is pleased to invite you to participate in the 2018 Settlement Prediction Contest. All practitioners and students are encouraged to submit their predictions.
This contest intends to provide an opportunity for geotechnical professionals to flex their brain muscles and showcase their expertise by estimating load-movement response (settlement) of a single close-ended steel pipe pile under static loading condition.
Please see below for the details of the problem and instructions for the submissions. All submissions will remain anonymous and only three top estimates will be announced and recognized at the 2018 CGS-SOS Christmas Dinner on December 10, 2018.
The submission forms should be submitted via email by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 7, 2018.
