Description / Abstract:


This Geotechnical Special Publication contains selected technical papers of the 2nd International Conference on Geotechnical and Earthquake Engineering organized by the International Association of Chinese Geotechnical Engineers (IACGE) and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Division of Civil, Hydraulic and Architecture Engineering. The conference covers a broad field of topics in geotechnical and geotechnical earthquake engineering, including soil dynamics and earthquake engineering, foundation engineering and pile testing, excavation and shoring, embankments and retaining walls, tunnels and underground structures, dams and levees, slopes and landslides, expansive soils and loess, geology and rock mechanics, ground improvement techniques, geotechnical numerical modeling and computation, and geotechnical support technologies during construction.

About four hundred abstracts were received in response to the Call for Papers. The abstracts were reviewed by the organizing committee and as a result three hundred and fifty invitations were extended to prepare and submit full-length papers. A total of three hundred and twenty full-length papers were received in response to these invitations and one hundred and seventy papers out of the total were written in English.

The papers written in English were reviewed following the same procedures and technical standards of the ASCE Geotechnical Special Publications. Each paper must have received two positive reviews to be accepted and must have revised to conform to the mandatory revisions of the reviewers. A number of papers went through more than one cycle of review and revision. Standard editorial review forms and checklists were utilized to maintain uniform technical standards of the papers. As a result, one hundred and thirty papers were accepted for the conference and ninety-two papers were selected to be included in this ASCE Geotechnical Special Publications. All the papers selected for the Geotechnical Special Publications are eligible for discussion in the ASCE Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering and for ASCE award nominations.
