The 16th ICSMGE responds to the needs of the engineering and construction community, promoting dialog and exchange between academia and practice in various aspects of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. This is reflected in the central theme of the conference 'Geotechnology in Harmony with the Global Environment'. The proceedings of the conference are of great interest for geo-engineers and researchers and reflect the present state-of-the-art of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering.
Volume 1 contains 5 Plenary Session lectures, Terzaghi Oration, Heritage Lecture, and 3 papers presented in the Major Project Session, and a CD.
Volumes 2, 3, and 4 contain the papers with the following topics:
- Soil Mechanics in General;
- Infrastructure and Mobility;
- Environmental Issues of Geotechnical Engineering;
- Enhancing Natural Disaster Reduction Systems; and
- Professional Practice and Education.
Volume 5 contains the report of Practitioner/Academic Forum, 20 General Reports, Summary of the Sessions and Workshops held during the conference and a CD.
