Abstract: Proceedings of sessions of GeoShanghai 2010, held in Shanghai, China, June 3-5, 2010. Hosted by Tongji University, China; Shanghai Society of Civil Engineering, China; Chinese Institution of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, China. In cooperation with Alaska University Transportation Center, USA; Geo-Institute of ASCE, USA; Deep Foundation Institute, USA; East China Architectural Design and Research Institute Company, China; Georgia Institute of Technology, USA; Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan; Transportation Research Board, USA; University of Newcastle, Australia; University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA; University of Kansas, USA; University of Tennessee, USA; Vienna University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Austria. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 42 papers that examine a variety of topics in soil dynamics and earthquake engineering. Topics include: dynamic soil-structural interactions under seismic loads; dynamic properties of soils and rocks; and seismic zoning and earthquake hazard assessment. Papers cover important issues such as the dynamic responses of earth dams, piles and pile groups, soil nailing, tunnels, landfills, and shallow foundations.
