Professor Nilmar Janbu, prominent geotechnical engineer, 1922-2013

From the NGI:

Professor Emeritus Nilmar Janbu, the acclaimed scholar in geotechnical engineering at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), passed away peacefully in Trondheim on January 4th 2013. He was 91.

Nilmar received his M.Sc. degree at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA, USA, in 1949, where he worked with Professors Karl Terzaghi and Arthur Cassagrande. In 1954, he successfully defended his doctoral work, also at Harvard. Nilmar Janbu joined NGI in 1952, working closely with Laurits Bjerrum and Bjørn Kjærnsli.

Professor Janbu was an internationally recognized figure in geotechnical engineering, and our entire profession mourns his passing. My condolences to those closest to him. [Source: Norwegian Geotechnical Institute via Image: Norwegian Geotechnial Institute]
