BEHAVIOR OF GEOMATERIALS AND FOUNDATIONS FOR CIVIL INFRASTRUCTURE APPLICATIONS
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
As a result of increasing and continuous social and infrastructural growth, appropriate ground for living and development becomes progressively scanty. Thus, engineers have been considering constructing buildings and infrastructure at locations with less favorable geotechnical conditions and in some cases in seismically active regions. Therefore, proper understanding of the soil behavior has become significantly important to optimize the design and construction of foundations. This Geotechnical Special Publication (GSP) contains 30 papers that were accepted and presented at the GeoChina International Conference on Sustainable Civil Infrastructures: Innovative Technologies for Severe Weathers and Climate Changes, held in Shandong, China on July 25-27, 2016. Major topics covered in this GSP are dynamic behavior of soils and foundations, and physical, numerical, constitutive modeling of soil behavior. The overall theme of the GSP is Behaviour of Geomaterials and Foundations for Civil Infrastructure Applications, and all papers address different research findings of this theme. It provides an effective mean of sharing recent technological advances, engineering applications and research results among scientists, researchers and engineering practitioners. All abstracts and full papers have been peer-reviewed prior to their acceptance and inclusion in this publication. We are most grateful to all authors and reviewers who have contributed to this Geotechnical Special Publication.
