Happy New Year and welcome to the January issue of the AGS Magazine. I hope you all managed to take a break over the Christmas period and are feeling refreshed.
In this edition we introduce our first bitesize Guides covering prEN 1997. The AGS Geotechnical WG have produced a number of guides, prepared due to the imminent publication of the second-generation of Eurocodes. They are intended to introduce topics selected from the current drafts and to give personal views and understanding of the requirements gleaned from the code as actually written.
Other topics explored in this edition are: Calibration of Whatman Grade 42 filter paper for soil suction measurements and AGS welfare guidance, a step in the right direction, which signposts newly published AGS Welfare Safety Guidance.
Also in this edition: Peter Widdowson takes us on a look inside Igne.
We have several events coming up, starting with the Early Careers webinar series on 24th January 2024, a free to attend webinar organised by our early careers’ members. The webinar will look at common risks of GI’s, identification and mitigation. In March we have BS8574 – A Guide to Data Management Plans and in April we have our Annual Conference, an in-person event which will have a sustainability theme. I hope you will be able to join us.
