This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 41 papers addressing many different areas of soil behavior, constitutive modeling, and geo-micromechanics. Papers cover topics ranging from experimental studies of soil shear strength and compressibility to theoretical advances in Biot's consolidation theory and constitutive modeling. The research described in this proceedings advances understanding of soil as an engineering material and improves our ability to model the behavior of soil in slopes, foundations, and earth structures.
