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 58 papers covering recent case histories, theoretical advances, laboratory and field testing, and design methods in ground modification and seismic mitigation. The book discusses topics related to deep mixing, prefabricated vertical drains, ground improvement by granular columns, vacuum consolidation, soil treatment, ground reinforcement by nails and anchors, combined soil modifications and geosynthetics. The first section of the book covers soil improvement for foundations, suspension bridges, railway tracks, embankments on columns, analysis of composite ground, liquefaction mitigation by electro-osmosis, stone columns, jet grouting and wick drains. The second section of the book discusses the seismic performance of underground structures, bridge approaches and immerse tunnels. These papers will be beneficial to practitioners, researchers, and other geotechnical professionals.
