Mr. Caldwell was responsible for supervising the engineering and design of the Nation's largest water resource development program, with a design output covering over $1 billion of construction work annually in the areas of flood control, navigation improvement, harbor development, beach erosion control, hurricane protection, wastewater control, water quality improvement, and hydroelectric power plants.

In 1932 Arthur Casagrande began his long association with the Graduate School of Engineering at Harvard, where he developed a program of instruction that became the training ground for the majority of workers in soil mechanics and brought recognition to Harvard as the world's outstanding center of teaching and research in that field. He developed the triaxial test, now universally used as the basic technique for investigating strength and volumechange characteristics of earth materials, and entered into a lifelong study of the phenomenon of liquefaction, or loss in strength, of saturated cohesionless soils as a result of shock or earthquakes.
