Lecture Titled: Case Study on The Application of Geosynthetic Reinforced Soil Slope on A Clay Shales Formation

Tjie Liong Gouw

Mr. Gouw is a senior geotechnical consultant practicing particularly in Indonesia. He graduated from Parahyangan Catholic University, Bandung, Indonesia, with a Master degree in Civil Engineering (Ir.) in 1984.

Upon his graduation in 1984, he has been working actively in the field of geotechnical engineering, starting from site engineer to becoming geotechnical consultant seven years later. He involves in the design and execution of geotechnical investigation, soil instrumentation, deep foundation and excavation for high rise buildings, load tests (Static and PDA), pile integrity testing (PIT), sonic logging integrity test, vibration monitoring, slope stabilization, ground anchors, pumping test, dewatering, micropiles, tunnelling and ground improvement works, e.g. dynamic compaction, vertical drain, vibro-compaction, geosynthetic and grouting. The jobs cover more than 240 projects in Indonesia, Singapore and Srilanka.

Mr. Gouw also plays active role in Indonesian Geotechnical Engineers Association (HATTI) and in the recent years he also gets involved in the preparation of Indonesian National Standard for geotechnics. Not forgetting his academic interest, he also serves as senior lecturer in universities for many years.
