Proceedings of sessions of the GeoShanghai Conference, held in Shanghai, China, June 6-8, 2006. Hosted by Tongji University and Shanghai Society of Civil Engineering, China. In cooperation with the Geo-Institute of ASCE; Georgia Institute of Technology; the University of Kansas; the University of Tennessee; International Association of Foundation Drilling; Deep Foundation Institute; Saga University; and Delft University of Technology.
This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 42 papers presenting the latest advances in research and practical applications in earth structures including slope stability, embankments and dams, and earth retaining walls. The book begins with two state-of-the-art papers on recent advances in three-dimensional slope stability analysis and geosynthetic-reinforced earth structures. The 18 papers in the slope stability section present technologies for stabilization of slopes and landslides, monitoring of slope movement, and analysis of slope stability. The embankment and dam section contains 13 papers focusing on performance of embankments and dams including deformation and bearing capacity, particularly on pile-supported embankments. Finally, the nine papers in the earth retaining wall section present analytical and numerical methods for different earth retaining wall systems, with a focus on lateral earth pressure and stability.
