Special Issue on Case Histories from Turkey by the Turkish Geotechnical Society published

We are pleased to announce the Special Issue #1 of Volume #6 of the International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories, an official Journal of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE).  

This Special Issue of the ISSMGE International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories draws from case histories on three different projects carried out in Turkey. The studies, selected by the Turkish Geotechnical Society for ISSMGE, are engaging examples of geotechnical construction activities in Turkey and considered to be particularly useful for educational purposes as they outline all the stages of the design and construction procedures, together with performance evaluations.  

Papers published in this refereed journal are freely available in color and are accompanied by databases that include the electronic data presented in the paper as well as additional figures (as necessary). The locations of the case histories are also positioned in the IJGCH Geographic Database.
