The proceedings of the 1992 ASCE Specialty Conference on Grouting, Soil Improvement and Geosynthetics, addresses advances in the state-of-practice, research and technological developments in four rapidly expanding geotechnical areas: 1) Grouting techniques and materials, 2) soil improvement technologies, 3) geosynthetics engineering, and 4) ground modification for geo-environmental applications. The 105 contributed papers and 4 invited keynote papers provide a broad-based technical discussion of design practice, innovative construction technologies and products, and monitored case studies of new engineering applications. Overall, these proceedings represent a significant contribution to the state-of-the-art, which will effectively assist practicing engineers, manufacturers, potential users, and researchers to recognize the limitations of current practice, evaluate the feasibility of innovative technologies, and address the technical challenges that will undoubtedly face the profession in the next century.
