Steve Kay

(in memoriam 1946 - 2018)

The late Steve Kay was an independent geotechnical consultant with thirty-three years’ experience as a principal engineer with Fugro, and over forty-five years as a geotechnical specialist, mainly in the oil and gas industry, both with contractors and consultants. His expertise was in shallow and intermediate (caisson, bucket, can) foundation design, with extensive worldwide experience in offshore, nearshore and land engineering. He gave suction foundation courses and master classes and wrote the commercially available software package CAISSON_VHM and the calculation kernel for Jack-Up Rig & Spudcan Penetration, based on ISO-19905-1. 

His son Richard Kay (1982) currently looks after his software legacy and licensing.
