Recent advancement in soil behavior, in situ test methods, pile foundations, and tunneling; proceedings.

GeoHunan International Conference (2009: Hunan, China) Ed. by Liaqat Ali et al.

290 pages



Geotechnical special publication; no.192


The overarching themes are soil behavior and laboratory testing, in-situ test methods for characterizing sites, the design and quality control of earth structures and subgrades, pile foundations in subgrade, and tunnel engineering. The 44 papers themselves consider such topics as the discrete element modeling of aggregate behavior in fouled railroad ballast, logging for diametric variation of stone columns using crosshole seismic tests, the nonlinear response of passively loaded piles founded in soft Bangkok clay, failure mechanisms and corresponding stability charts of homogeneous rock slopes, and mechanic characteristics of waterproof membrane for highway tunnels. Each paper has been reviewed and approved by at least two professional geotechnical engineers specializing in the subject area discussed.
