Description

Proceedings of the 2010 Biennial Geotechnical Seminar, held in Denver, Colorado, November 5, 2010. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE; the Colorado Chapter of the Geo-Institute; Rocky Mountain Section of the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists; Colorado Association of Geotechnical Engineers.

This Geotechnical Practice Publication contains 11 papers that examine past, present, and future geotechnical challenges for Colorado in the areas of earth retention, foundations, dams, pavements, and sustainability.

Topics include:

  • downtown excavation shoring
  • Colorado earthquakes
  • sustainability in geotechnical engineering
  • thermo-active foundations
  • helical pile capacity

GPP 6 will be valuable to anyone involved with geotechnical engineering, especially those working in Colorado or similar geologic settings.
