Four journal papers have been selected from the candidate's published research output, to represent his work in developing analytical methods for use in geotechnical engineering design and analysis. Two of the papers contribute to significant advances in the understanding of the behaviour of dry-stone retaining walls, which will lead to greater confidence in the assessment of existing walls and the design of new walls. The other two papers develop optimisation and analysis routines with the aim of supporting the assessment of slope stability, and the design of new cut and built slopes and stabilisation works.
