Special Issue on Engineering Practice of Risk Assessment and Management by ISSMGE TC304 published

We are pleased to announce the Special Issue #4 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 eight recent case histories that demonstrate the developments and applications of geotechnical risk assessment and management approaches in engineering practice. Recent years have seen rapid theoretical developments on the characterization and evaluation of geotechnical uncertainty, and the approaches that quantify the propagation of such into risks in engineering system performance. This Special Issue is a showcase of these various aspects, with studies adopting a wide range of techniques from geostatistical analysis, random field modelling to machine learning approaches, addressing practical issues that include subsurface characterization, performance of dams and embankments, geogrid-reinforced soil walls, soil liquefaction and beyond.

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.
