Each year, ICE Publishing (Institution of Civil Engineers Publishing) acknowledges the best work published in its journals at the ICE Publishing Awards ceremony, held at One Great George Street in London, UK.

The Institution awards authors from both industry and academia who have produced work judged by their peers to be of exceptional quality and benefit to the civil engineering, construction and materials science community.

Professor Roy Butterfield and Dr. Michela Marchi have been awarded a Telford Premium Prize for the best paper in Geotechnical Research Journal:


The compressibility of natural and reconstituted marine clays


Geotechnical Research: Volume 4, December 2017, pp. 172-177


The paper presents a simple, new formulation of the ‘intrinsic’ compression and ‘sedimentation’ compression lines for a range of insensitive, sedimentary marine clays by using a bilogarithmic law.


The paper is free to view on ICE Virtual Library in perpetuity as part of the commitment of the Institution to furthering knowledge and best practice.

Roy Butterfield and Michela Marchi received the award in a ceremony held at the ICE Headquarters at One Great George Street, London on Monday 8th October 2018.
