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 39 papers that represent the latest developments in the application of soil, rock, and groundwater mechanics in geotechnical engineering modeling and practice. Topics include: the relationship between geotechnical engineering and sustainability; new evidence and research into the strength and deformational behavior of soil; and recent advances in characterization and modeling of groundwater flow in geological formations of diverse geotechnical properties. Papers are organized into three categories: geoenvironmental engineering, geotechnics, and seepage and porous mechanics.
