    Greetings STL Section,
    Our March meeting will be on Thursday, March 21 in St. Louis at Andre's Banquet Center.  Socializing will start at 6 pm, with dinner service beginning around 6:30. 

    Our speaker is Dr. Gennaro Marino of Marino Engineering Associates.  Dr. Marino received his PhD in Civil Engineering in 1985, from the University of Illinois, holds a PE in 25 states, and has authored over 100 articles and publications on subsidence engineering topics.

    Dr. Marino will be talking about Mine Subsidence Engineering.  "This presentation covers key aspects of mine subsidence engineering, a subject that is not well understood, and embraces a number of engineering disciplines. It focuses on the causes of mine subsidence and how mine stability relates to the resulting ground movements. Different mining and geologic conditions determine the mode of failure of the mine. The mode of mine failure in turn affects the resulting subsidence movement. Prediction of subsidence and damage potential are also key aspects of subsidence engineering. Examples of expected subsidence damage as well as mine stabilization will be shown. This presentation will be presented in a manner that will be understandable to anyone that would be interested in learning more about mine subsidence."
