About the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division
The mandate of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division is to promote classical geotechnical and foundation engineering research, to promote the documentation of case histories and experience of practicing engineers, and to promote and facilitate the continuing education of our members. This occurs through the regular technical meetings at the local level, through short courses and symposia, through support for the Cross Canada Lecture Tour, through our annual conference and via our liaison with the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
