Aims and scope
Geotechnical and Geological Engineering publishes papers in the areas of soil and rock engineering and also of geology as applied in the civil engineering, mining and petroleum industries. The emphasis is on the engineering aspects of soil and rock mechanics, geology and hydrogeology, although papers on theoretical and experimental advances in ground mechanics are also welcomed for inclusion.
The journal encompasses a broad spectrum of geo-engineering although several areas have been identified which will be given particular priority:
Soil and rock engineering;
Applied geology for design and construction;
Earthquake engineering and dynamic behavior of soils and rocks;
Geohazards and mitigation;
Geotechnical aspects of petroleum engineering;
Information technology applications in geo-engineering;
Novel geotechnical construction techniques;
Case histories describing important geo-engineering projects.
Geotechnical and Geological Engineering publishes contributions in the form of original and review papers, or as short technical notes.
