Abstract: This collection of papers covers a broad range of relevant issues in geotechnical engineering. Topics include capillary phenomena in cohesive soils, final foundation treatment at Hoover Dam, photoelastic analogy for non-homogeneous foundation, anchored bulkheads, the undisturbed consolidation behavior of clay, the action of soft clay among friction piles, stabilization of materials by compaction, and compacting earth dams with heavy tamping rollers. This collection of papers will be of interest to both practitioners and researchers in the field of geotechnical engineering.
