Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II deals with the geotechnics of roads, railways and airfields. Providing economic and sustainable transportation infrastructures for societies is highly dependent on progress made in this field. These contributions to the 2nd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics (Hokkaido, Japan, 10-12 September 2012), held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), cover a broad range of technical topics, including those addressed by the first conference held in Nottingham, UK in 2008. Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II contains a total of 138 reviewed papers from 29 countries in addition to 5 invited papers prepared by distinguished keynote lecturers, and addresses the following themes: - Geotechnics of pavements, railway tracks and airfields; - Geomaterial, including non-traditional materials; - Asphalt mixtures and hydraulically-bound materials; - Earthworks for transportation facilities; - Application of geosynthetics; - Laboratory testing and in-situ testing; - Modeling and numerical simulations; - Design, construction and maintenance; - Performance evaluation and quality control; - Sustainability of management and rehabilitation; - Risk assessment and environmental issues. Advances in Transportation Geotechnics II will be of interest to professionals and academics involved in geotechnical and pavement engineering of roads, railways and airfields.
Highways provide the arteries of modern society. The interaction of road, rail and other transport infrastructure with the ground is unusually intimate, and thus needs to be well-understood to provide economic and reliable infrastructure for society. Challenges include not only the design of new infrastructure (often on problematic ground), but increasingly the management and maintenance of aging assets in the face of issues such as climate change. This book is the written record of the first International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, held in Nottingham, UK, in 2008. It comprises about 100 papers from a global selection of researchers and practitioners on: – Slope instability, stabilisation, and asset management; – Construction on soft ground; – Interaction with structures and geogrid reinforced soil; – Effect of climate change and vegetation; – Highways, pavements and subgrade; – Railway geotechnics; – Soil improvement; – Characterisation and recycling of geomaterials. A further part of this collection contains papers on unbound aggregate materials as used in pavement construction and drainage. They formed the ‘Unbound Aggregates in Roads (UNBAR7)’ theme of the conference which followed on from the previous symposia of that title, also held in Nottingham, UK, most recently in 2004. The volume will be of interest to professionals and academics in geotechnical, highway, railway and general civil engineering.
These are the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Engineering Sciences and Technologies (ESaT 2016), held from 29th of June until the 1st of July 2016 in the scenic High Tatras Mountains, Tatranské Matliare, Slovak Republic. After the successful implementation and excellent feedback of the first international conference ESaT 2015, ESaT 2016 was organized under the auspices of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Technical University of Košice, Slovak Republic in collaboration with the University of Miskolc, Hungary. The conference focused on a wide spectrum of topics and subject areas in civil engineering sciences. The proceedings bringing new and original advances and trends in various fields of engineering sciences and technologies that accost a wide range of academics, scientists, researchers and professionals from universities and practice. The authors of the articles originate from different countries around the world guaranteeing the importance, topicality, quality and level of presented results.
"Advances in Environmental Geotechnics" presents the latest developments in this interdisciplinary field. The topics covered include basic and advanced theories for modeling of geoenvironmental phenomena, testing and monitoring for geoenvironmental engineering, municipal solid wastes and landfill engineering, sludge and dredged soils, geotechnical reuse of industrial wastes, contaminated land and remediation technology, applications of geosynthetics in geoenvironmental engineering, geoenvironmental risk assessment, management and sustainability, ecological techniques and case histories. This proceedings includes papers authored by core members of ISSMGE TC5 (International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering---Environmental Geotechnics) and geoenvironmental researchers from more than 20 countries and regions. It is a valuable reference for geoenvironmental and geotechnical engineers as well as civil engineers. Yunmin Chen, Xiaowu Tang, and Liangtong Zhan are Professors at the Department of Civil Engineering of Zhejiang University, China.
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 12 technical papers that address the role of geotechnical engineering in the design and construction of deep foundations, earth retaining structures, and pavements. Presented at the 13th Great Lakes Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Conference (GLGGC) held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, May 13, 2005, several of the papers focus on the Marquette Interchange Project, a multi-million dollar reconstruction of transportation in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. The conference itself was a forum for discussion of the latest advances in geotechnical engineering applications for transportation infrastructure including earth retaining structures, deep foundations, and geotechnical engineering. This book will be beneficial to geotechnical and pavement engineers and professionals.
