6th International Conference on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering August 2008
Matching Research Agency
Conference fee revenue and Missouri S&T Distance & Continuing Education
Enhancing objectives of the 6th International Conference on Case Histories in Geotechnical Engineering. The conference will provide a forum for research workers, teachers, practicing engineers, and scientists to review recent advances on important topics of current interest.
Due to uncertainty in the nature of soils, a systematic study of the performance of geotechnical structures and its match with predictions is extremely important. Therefore, considerable research effort is being devoted to geotechnical engineering through the world.
Participants will discuss recent advances in topics including case histories of foundations; dams and embankments; geotechnical earthquake engineering and natural disasters; engineering vibrations; retaining structures and deep excavations; geological, rock and mining engineering; forensic engineering; soil property improvement.
