about this item

Three volumes collecting the 405 papers presented during the November 2015 conference share recent advances in understanding soil mechanics, rock mechanics, and best practices for geotechnical engineering. The first volume focuses on transportation geotechnics, in situ testing, and geo-engineering for energy and sustainability. Volume two explores numerical modeling, foundation and ground improvement, and unsaturated soils, while volume three addresses embankments, dams, tailings, tunnels, and excavations. The closing section on risk analysis identifies a failure mechanism associated with hydrostatic pressure in deep-seated landslides, proposes a numerical tool for computing avalanches of unstable rock masses, evaluates ground motion prediction equations in the Chilean subduction zone, and describes a temporal network of 24 broadband stations that continuously measure seismic ambient noise. About half the papers are written in Spanish and half in English. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
