About

Background

Professor Taylor graduated from Cambridge University in 1976. After a brief period in industry, he returned to Cambridge as a research assistant working with the geotechnical centrifuge both to develop the facility and conduct research on buried pipes. His doctoral research focussed on the study of time dependent processes associated with tunnelling and trenching.

Professor Taylor joined City University in 1984 as a lecturer responsible for establishing physical modelling research. He established the geotechnical centrifuge facility at City University and has initiated and supervised a wide range of projects utilising centrifuge modelling to address geotechnical problems related to infrastructure development. His research interests have concentrated on underground construction with specialisation in the analysis of ground movements associated with underground excavation. A key aspect of such research involves the detailed measurement of widespread ground movements caused by tunnel and basement excavations. In collaboration with the Engineering Surveying Group then at City University, he developed a system for using the analysis of digital images to determine accurate and detailed patterns of ground movement enabling centrifuge studies to focus on pre-failure ground movements. In 1996 he was awarded the Personal Chair of Geotechnical Engineering.

Professor Taylor is recognised internationally as an expert on geotechnical centrifuge modelling. He has produced the only textbook on geotechnical centrifuge modelling, which is widely used by other research groups. He has given many lectures and presentations at geotechnical engineering symposia around the world and has served on a number of national and international committees, mainly involving centrifuge modelling and underground construction. In the UK, he has consulted on many projects and has been an Associate of Geotechnical Consulting Group since 1990.

He has been a member of the Géotechnique Advisory Panel and the British Geotechnical Society Committee and currently serves on the EPRSC College. He has served on International Technical Committees for Centrifuge Testing and Underground Construction in Soft Ground. In 1999 he became Secretary General of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.

Research

Research interests

Director Construction Processes Research Centre (Civil Engineering)

Research interests focussed on geotechnical engineering include:
- Prediction and control of tunnelling induced ground movements
- Interaction of ground movements with structures
- Ground movements associated with deep excavations
- Centrifuge modelling of geotechnical events

A key aspect of infrastructure development involves controlling ground movements caused by new construction and ensuring that inevitable movements have minimal impact on existing infrastructure and services. Geotechnical centrifuge modelling allows novel and complex geotechnical events to be investigated within a well-controlled and repeatable environment in the laboratory. Our centrifuge facility is deliberately user-friendly facilitating doctoral and post-doctoral projects of direct interest and relevance to industry. I have initiated and supervised a wide range of projects on tunnel excavations and have considerable experience in the development and control of ground movements due to tunnelling.
