This is the first lecture within the series made possible through a generous gift from
Shamsher and Sally Prakash. Dr. Shamsher Prakash joined the department of civil engineering
in 1978 as an associate professor in geotechnical engineering and has since influenced a generation
of graduates and peers.   Retiring in 2000, he is now a professor emeritus.
Shamsher has made several contributions to the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering,
in which he is recognized for advancing soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. He is a pioneer
in the liquefaction of silts and clays and soil-pile-structure interactions.
