  • Innovations in Controlled Low-Strength Material (Flowable Fill)

    Get the latest information on Controlled Low-Strength Material (CLSM), including new design procedures, current research, unique project applications, and innovative installation techniques. Also known as flowable fill, CLSM is used in place of compacted backfill or unsuitable native soil with the most common uses as pipe embedment and backfill. ...

  • Resilient Modulus Testing for Pavement Components

    Nineteen peer-reviewed papers address the latest issues affecting the resilient modulus test and use of the test results. Resilient modulus indicates the stiffness of a soil under controlled confinement conditions and repeated loading. The test is intended to simulate the stress conditions that occur in the base and subgrade of a pavement ...

They include a geonet with a geotextile, ...

  • Dynamic Geotechnical Testing II

    Cyclic and dynamic testing of soils for geotechnical engineering purposes and centrifuge testing has emerged as a new tool for understanding soil behavior and dynamic soil-structure interaction. STP 1213 is an excellent reference document on these latest testing practices, and emerging technologies and provides additional information on measuring ...

  • Geotechnical Engineering of Ocean Waste Disposal

    15 peer-reviewed papers on geotechnical test methods and procedures used for site evaluation, design, construction, and monitoring of both contaminated areas and waste disposal facilities in the marine environment. Part A -- Shallow Ocen Disposal: Dredged Material, Sludges, and Bulking Wastes includes six papers on dredge material disposal. Part ...

  • Physico-Chemical Aspects of Soil and Related Materials

    Provides information on physico-chemical interactions and their test methods. Chemical changes in soil such as pH, lime additions, salinity, and their effects on physical properties (such as mechanical behavior, swelling, compressibility, plasticity, and strength) are discussed in detail. 14 peer-reviewed papers cover: • lime and lime-like ...

  • Dynamic Geotechnical Testing

  • Performance Monitoring for Geotechnical Construction

    The National Materials Conservation Symposium on Resource Recovery and Utilization was held 29 April-1 May 1974 at the National Bureau of Standards in The symposium was sponsored by: National Bureau of Standards; Bureau of Mines; Environmental Protection Agency; National Center for Resource Recovery, Inc.; and American Society for Testing and ...

  • Testing of Peats and Organic Soils

    The Symposium on Testing of Peats and Organic Soils was held on 23 June 1982 in Toronto, Canada. ASTM Committee D18 on Soil and Rock sponsored the event. The Peatlands Subcommittee of the Associate Committee on Geotechnical Research of the National Research Council of Canada was ...

  • Cavity Expansion Methods in Geomechanics

    Cavity expansion theory is a simple theory that has found many applications in geotechnical engineering. In particular, it has been used widely to analyse problems relating to deep foundations, in-situ testing, underground excavation and tunnelling, and wellbore instability. Although much research has been carried out in this field, all the ...

  • Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering

    The book contains the invited keynote and theme lectures presented at the 4th International Conference on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering (4ICEGE). The conference was held in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 25 to 28 June, 2007, and was organized by the Technical Committee of Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering (TC4) of the International Society of ...

  • Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering

    This book presents all issues of earthquake geotechnical engineering in a comprehensive way. It summarizes the present knowledge on earthquake hazards and their causative mechanisms, experimental studies on nonlinear complex soil behaviour, an analysis to predict ground behaviour during earthquakes, field studies to determine nature of real ground ...

  • Geotechnical Testing Journal

    The purpose of the Geotechnical Testing Journal is (1) to provide a high-quality publication that informs the profession of new developments in soil and rock testing and related fields; (2) to provide a forum for the exchange of information, particularly that which leads to the development of new test procedures; and (3) to stimulate active ...
