Innovations in Geosynthetic Rolled Erosion Control Products: From Forests to Fibers
Over the last 50 years, many different types of geosynthetic rolled erosion control products (RECPs) have emerged, ranging from different structure types to different fiber types. Natural-fiber...

Geotechnical Risk Management: The Five Non-Technical Topics that are Crucial for the Successful Practice of Geotechnical Engineering
It is fair to state that the aspects of civil design and construction referred to as geotechnical engineering can be characterized as inherently risky. Geologic processes are complex,...

So, Why Do You Want to Write a GBR?
Since 1974, scores of papers, articles, conferences, and legal documents have been dedicated to explaining how to write and/or how to use a Geotechnical Baseline Report (GBR). But the...

Improving Construction Quality by Seeing What's Hidden Underground
One of the challenges of deep foundation projects is the inability to see what's being built at depth. Construction is hidden below ground, in soil or rock conditions that...

Geotechnical Design Over Karst. It's All About the Water
Karst is a type of topography which is formed over soluble rocks, such as limestone, dolomite, or gypsum. An irregular bedrock surface is typical of most karst areas, along with sinkholes,...

A Probabilistic Approach to Karstic Foundation Variability
Karst is a landscape formed in soluble rocks caused by movement of water that has become slightly acidic. Limestone, dolomite, and gypsum are vulnerable to these influences and may be...

Evaluation of the Stone Strong Gravity Wall System by Stone Strong Systems: Final Report
This report was prepared as part of the HITEC evaluation for earth retaining systems. This evaluation was performed on STONE STRONG gravity walls, a precast modular wall developed, designed,...

Journal of Nanomechanics and Micromechanics
The Journal of Nanomechanics and Micromechanics brings science and applications together on nanoscale and nanostructured materials, with emphasis on mechanics, processing, characterization, design, modeling,...

Grouting Methods
This chapter discusses common grouting methods used in underground applications in both soil and rock. Jet, compaction, permeation, and hydrofracture grouting methods are frequently used...

Grout Hole Layout
The drilling method, either rotary or percussion, and the type and size of the drills to be used are selected based on such factors as rock type, depth of holes required, working space...
