Claims against Geotechnical Engineers: Getting it Right in the Midst of Uncertainty
Geotechnical engineering is one of engineering's riskiest professions, prone to litigation due to the inherent uncertainty associated with characterizing the subsurface. Site investigations rarely provide...

Stabilizing Variable and Sloping Ground: Achieving Innovation Through Adaptation
We all know the high price of land development these days, so it's more important than ever for owners and their designers to maximize available land area. Occasionally, this demand is constrained by topography...

Site Conditions
The owner and the engineer should visit the proposed site during the initial planning phase and periodically throughout design to identify site conditions and constraints. A survey of...

Appendix C U.S. Department of Transportation Gulf Coast Study, Phase 2
Back matter pages come after the papers or chapters in a published work. This back matter contains U.S. Department of Transportation gulf coast study, phase 2...

Design-Build and Public-Private Partnerships: Risk Allocation of Subsurface Conditions
Project Owners, especially in the public sector, are exploring and utilizing alternative project delivery methods, such as design-build (D-B) and public-private partnerships (P3s). Some...

The Best Surprise is No Surprise: The Geotechnical Engineer's Ethical Responsibility to Say No to Bidding
The subsurface characterization work that a geotechnical engineer must perform is critical to the success of every project that requires the cooperation of the ground, regardless of whether...

Sinkhole Investigation and Grouting: Novel Recommendations for a Pipeline Right-of-Way
In 2009, numerous sinkholes developed within and adjacent to a 400-ft-long section of high-pressure, petroleum pipeline right-of-way that crosses under a local creek in Plymouth Meeting,...
