Technical Committee 202 (formerly TC-3) of the ISSMGE was established in 2001 in accordance with the proposal approved by the ISSMGE Board serving the 2001-2005 term. The Committee completed three 4-year terms under the leadership of Professor Antonio Gomes Correia as Chairman (2001-2013). Professor Erol Tutumluer is the current Chairman of TC202 serving the 2017-2021 term.

Technical Committee 202 works closely with its members to organize symposia, workshops, and international exchanges dealing with all aspects of Transportation Geotechnics in both traditional and emerging areas. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of Prof. Gomes Correia, TC202 has created a new named lecture series in commemoration to late R.R. Proctor to be delivered by the world's most distinguished achievements in Transportation Geotechnics. "Proctor Lecture" is organized as the primary keynote event at each International Conferenence Transportation Geotechnics (ICTG) hosted by ISSMGE-TC202. The inaugural Proctor Lecture was delivered at the 3rd International Conference of Transportation Geotechnics in Guimaraes, Portugal, on September 4-7, 2016.

You are encouraged to contact us, bring new proposals, and/or participate in the ongoing activities of TC202.

Prof. Erol Tutumluer, Chair
  Prof. Tatsuya Ishikawa, Secretary

Terms of Reference for TC202

The goal of Technical Commitee (TC) 202 is to apply broad engineering to bridge the gap between Pavement/Railway Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering. The main task is to promote co-operation and exchange of information and knowledge about the geotechnical aspects in design, construction, maintenance, monitoring and upgrading of roads, railways, airfields and harbor. The task also covers the related environmental aspects. For these purposes several main topics were identified and materialized in the main Task Forces of the Committee.
