Oct 06, 2023

We are proud to announce that Dr. Hongwei Liu, Geotechnical E.I.T. at KGS Group, has been awarded an Honourable Mention for the 2023 R.M. Quigley Award, for his paper published in the Canadian Geotechnical Journal: Experimental investigation and numerical modeling of piezoelectric bender element motion and wave propagation analysis in soils. The paper was co-authored with Dr. Giovanni Cascante, University of Waterloo, Dr. Pooneh Maghoul, Polytechnique Montréal, and Dr. Ahmed Shalaby, University of Manitoba.

The R.M. Quigley Award is given out each year, as well as three honourable mention awards, to the best paper published in Canadian Geotechnical Journal. Bob Quigley was one of the leading geotechnical engineers in Canada and one of the founders of the discipline of geoenvironmental engineering. His high research standards were reflected in his winning of the Canadian Geotechnical Society’s best CGJ paper award in 1980 and 1993, and the award was then named in his honour.

The 2023 awards were presented at the Canadian Geotechnical Society’s Annual Conference – GeoSaskatoon Awards Banquet.

A big congratulations to Hongwei and all of the co-authors!
