Book Description

Challenges and Innovations in Geotechnics is a collections of papers presented at the Eighth Asian Young Geotechnical Engineering Conference (8AYGEC, Astana, Kazakhstan, 5-7 August 2016), and covers various aspects the areas of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. The book contains special and keynote lectures and contributions on a wide range of topics in geotechnical engineering and construction:
(1) Laboratory and Field Testing
(2) Foundation and Underground Structure
(3) Ground Improvement
(4) Earthquake and Environment
(5) Numerical and Analytical Modeling
