This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 39 papers that represent the latest developments in the application of soil, rock, and groundwater mechanics in geotechnical engineering modeling and practice. Topics include the relationship between geotechnical engineering and sustainability; new evidence and research into the strength and deformational behavior of soil; and recent advances in characterization and modeling of groundwater flow in geological formations of diverse geotechnical properties. Papers are organized into three categories: geoenvironmental engineering, geotechnics, and seepage and porous mechanics.
