Abstract

All members of TC 204 are very saddened to learn of the passing away of Professor Keiichi Fujita on 31st July 2010. He was a very distinguished engineer who achieved an enormous amount in his very active and highly successful career. He was not only an expert on tunnelling and deep excavations, but also on piled foundations and many other aspects of geotechnical engineering. He was the author of many State-of-the-Art reports and delivered many Keynote Lectures at ISSMGE conferences. Much has been achieved by ISSMGE’s Technical Committee 204 on Underground Construction in Soft Ground (formerly TC28) and this is in large part due to the inspirational leadership of Professor Fujita. In 1994, under his leadership as Chairman, Professor K. Fujita organized a one-day International Symposium in New Delhi—just before the 13th ICSMGE. This was an outstanding success, bringing together specialists in underground construction from many countries.
