Selected papers from the First International Symposium on Pavement and Geotechnical Engineering for Transportation Infrastructure held in Nanchang, China, June 5-7, 2011. Sponsored by the Nanchang Hangkong University and the International Association of Chinese Infrastructure Professionals (IACIP) in cooperation with the Geo-Institute of ASCE.
This Geotechnical Practice Publication contains 20 papers that represent the latest developments in the application of soil, rock, and paving materials to the study and application of geomechanics and transportation geotechnology.
Topics include pavement structure and subgrade preparation such as: the use of chemical additives and geogrid reinforcement; performance assessment of concrete and asphalt mixtures; mathematical models for the simulation of geotechnical problems; and evaluation of soil types in relation to slope failure, consolidation, and embankment behavior.
GPP 8 focuses on the application of geomechanics in transportation and will be of interest to both geotechnical engineers and transportation professionals.
