Abstract: Proceedings of the Second Japan-U.S. Workshop on Testing, Modeling, and Simulation in Geomechanics, held in Kyoto, Japan, September 8-10, 2005. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 38 papers reporting research gathered by investigators from Japan and the United States and covering various geomechanics issues, such as experimentation, constitutive modeling, and numerical simulations. This volume presents current relevant research activities on a variety of topics for the purpose of sharing knowledge to foster and build cooperative efforts between two countries.
