Public Lecture: The Mystery of Ground Settlement
Professor Francis T.K. Au and Dr Fiona C.Y. Kwok, Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong
Ground settlement has become a buzzword in the media for a few months. However, not much attention has been paid to the reasons behind this phenomenon, including the possible materials below ground level, and their likely responses to changes in loading and ground water level, construction activities in the neighbourhood, etc. Actually, different types of structure have different capabilities in accommodating settlements.
It is impossible to give simple answer to the phenomenon of ground settlement, the speakers will attempt to help the audience recognise the complexity of this phenomenon in a city.
