Geotechnical Special Publication: The Role of Full-Scale Testing in Foundation Design

PAPER TOPICS: The Geo-Institute is soliciting abstracts of technical papers for a special publication honoring Bengt H. Fellenius, Ph.D., P.Eng., M.ASCE. To be entitled The Role of Full-Scale Testing in Foundation Design, the volume will be edited by Mohamad H. Hussein, M.ASCE, Robert D. Holtz, Ph.D., P.E., Dist.M.ASCE, K. Rainer Massarsch, and Garland E. Likins, Jr., P.E., M.ASCE, and will make its appearance during the institute’s annual conference in 2012. Technical papers covering all aspects of foundation testing and design and foundation construction practices will be considered, and papers documenting case histories are particularly welcome.

DEADLINE: September 30, 2009, for abstract submission. Finished manuscripts will be expected in late 2010.

CONTACT: Abstracts of no more than 300 words are to be e-mailed to Hussein at
