  • Contains publications reflecting the latest advancements in a variety of research areas in geotechnical engineering
  • Subjects range from laboratory testing to soil modeling and field behavior of soil structures
  • Includes a valuable keynote paper by internationally renowned academics

This book has grown out of the proceedings of the Geotechnical Symposium in Rome, held in 2006 in the Italian capital.

The valuable contributions contained in its pages reflect the importance of the symposium, which was organized to celebrate the 60th birthday of Prof. Tatsuoka as well as honoring his research achievement. The publications are focused on the recent developments in the stress-strain behavior of geomaterials, with an emphasis on laboratory measurements, soil constitutive modeling and behavior of soil structures (such as reinforced soils, piles and slopes).

The latest advancements in the field, such as the rate effect and dynamic behavior of both clay and sand, the behavior of modified soils and soil mixtures, and soil liquefaction, are all addressed. A special keynote paper by Prof. Tatsuoka is included along with three other keynote papers (presented by Prof. Lo Presti, Prof. Di Benedetto, and Prof. Shibuya).
