- Hendra Jitno, Ph.D., http://geoteknik-indonesia.blogspot.com/
Dr. Jitno has extensive experience with static and seismic stability of earth and rockfill dams, slope protection design, remediation of slope failures, dewatering, soft clay engineering, deep excavation, retaining wall, shallow and deep foundation, residual and expansive soil. He has strong background in the numerical modelling of geotechnical problems, excellent understanding on the static and dynamic soil behaviour, and extensive experience with field and laboratory testing of soils. For the last 10 years, he has played a critical role in the design and analysis of many tailings dams in Queensland, over 10 dam improvement projects in Australia and New Zealand, 4 tunnel design projects in Singapore, 3 ports, abutment bridges, many foundation design verification of wind-farm towers in Australia and Antarctica and other infrastructure projects in South East Asia. He obtained a PhD degree in geotechnical engineering from the University of British Columbia in 1995 for his work on the liquefaction induced deformation of earth structures under the guidance of Prof. Peter M. Byrne.
