This proceedings, Vertical and Horizontal Deformations of Foundations and Embankments (Geotechnical Special Publication No. 40) consists of papers presented at the Specialty Conference sponsored by the Geotechnical Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers held in College Station, Texas, June 16-18, 1994. The prime goals of the conference and the resulting proceedings were: 1) to update the progress made since the 1964 Speciality Conference on Design of Foundations for Control of Settlement on prediction methods and mitigation technologies for both vertical and horizontal deformation of different types of foundations and embankments built on different soils; 2) to provide an effective forum for researchers and practitioners to share research results, current practice and recent technological advances; 3) to recognize the limitations in current practice, identify current and future needs of the profession, and assess the potential and feasibility of innovative technologies; and 4) to provide and effective vehicle for technology transfer. The 137 papers included in this publication cover such topics as: 1) embankments, deep fills, and landfills; 2) shallow foundations; 3) deep foundations; 4) soil improvement; 5) numerical and physical modeling; 6) soil dynamics; and 7) expansive soils, residual soils, and rock. This proceedings provides students, educators, researchers, and practitioners of geotechnical engineering an opportunity to assimilate new information and to meet new challenges.
