Why should engineers join together theory and practice?

David Blockley, Ph.D., F.IStructE, F.ICE, emeritus professor of civil engineering at the University of Bristol, in the United Kingdom, is the author of Building Bridges: Between Theory and Practice (London: World Scientific Publishing Co., 2020; 332 pages). In this book, Blockley explores the huge gaps between what engineers know, what they do, and why things go wrong.

Blockley chatted with Civil Engineering about his thoughts on each and how he believes the field of engineering should evolve for the future.
