New Civil Engineer

4-Apr-2007Kenneth Wilson Cole, who died on 9 January 2007, had a profound infl uence on the way in which geotechnical design is now undertaken in the UK. He served on GE’s editorial advisory board from 1981 to 1996, taking the role of chairman from 1990. Ken is one of the unsung heroes of British geotechnical engineering for raising the standard of investigation and design to what is now accepted as the baseline for good practice.
