About this book

The studies presented in this volume cover new approaches of geotechnical engineering introduced by researchers, engineers and scientists to address contemporary issues in geotechnical engineering such as the usage of sustainable materials in soil, soil characterization with new methods, and numerical simulations to predict material properties, etc. Studies were selected from the 6th GeoChina International Conference on Civil & Transportation Infrastructures: From Engineering to Smart & Green Life Cycle Solutions -- Nanchang, China, 2021.

About the authors

Dr. Jinwoo An is an Assistant Professor of Civil and Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University of Mount Union. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Central Florida in 2015 and his Master in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2012. Dr. An is an experienced and energetic engineer, researcher and educator. He previously worked at a structural engineering company as an assistantengineer to finish a structural design of a multipurpose building with 29 floors (Macroscale).For his dissertation, he conducted a research on the mechanical and structural performance ofcement composite materials, which incorporated sustainable materials (Meso-scale).During his postdoctoralcareer, he deeply explored the effects of Micro- and Nano-materials as additives in cement compositematerials (Micro- and Nano-scale).He also authored, co-authored and edited more than 50 technical reports, journal and conference papers.
Dr. Jizhe Zhang is an associate professor of the School of Qilu Transportation, Shandong University. He is a professionally registered pavement engineer with a research interest in moisture damage of asphalt mixture, composite modification of bituminous materials, asphalt mixture recycling, solid waste utilization in asphalt pavement.He completed his graduate studies at the Wuhan University of Technology, China and obtained his doctorate from the University of Nottingham, UK.He has published over 50 journal papers and 10 conference papers. He is Young Academic Editor of the Journal of Traffic and Transportation Engineering (English Edition). He is a member of technical committeein the World Transportation Convention and a member of the expert committee of iFRAE 2021.

Professor Juan Xie is from School of Traffic & Transportation Engineering of Changsha University of Science & Technology. She completed her graduate studies at Donghua University (China) and Princeton University (The United States). She has published more than 20 journal papers and two academic monographs. Five of her national invention patents have been authorized and one of them has been translated into actual production. She is the reviewer of many journals such as Polymers, Materials, Frontiers in Materials, International Journal of Hydrogen Energy. Her research and practical interests include design and preparation of functional materials, new building materials, asphalt and modified asphalt technology, and comprehensive utilization of material waste residue. Professor Juan Xie has completed a number of national, provincial and ministerial scientific research projects as the host. Prof Juan Xie has worked significantly on rubber powder modified asphalt and has been researching on molecular design and techniques to improve the performance of modified asphalt.
