Biography

Dr. Long holds a first class honours B.E. (Civil) degree and a MEngSc degree from University College Cork and a PhD from University College Dublin. Since 1996 he has been at UCD and is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil Engineering teaching and researching in soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. His particular areas of interest concern the engineering behaviour of natural soft soils and in particular peat and the construction of deep excavations in urban areas. He has published more than 90 journal papers on these topics. Before joining UCD, Dr. Long worked for consulting engineers, mostly Ove Arup & Partners, as a geotechnical engineer in Ireland, the United Kingdom and Singapore. He was responsible for the management of various large projects and several staff. He has particular experience in site investigation, foundation design, soft ground engineering and deep basement and embankment construction.

Research

Research Interests

His research work mostly comprises the characterisation of the engineering behaviour of natural soft soils, using field and laboratory tests, with a particular interest in peat. He also has a strong interest in the behaviour of deep excavations in urban areas and on ground potential to deliver shallow geothermal energy. He has published some 40 peer reviewed journal papers on these topics. He regularly acts as a consultant mostly on projects involving construction on soft ground and on the construction of deep basements.
