We are pleased to announce the special Issue #1 of Volume #5 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 presents recent case histories that exemplify the state of the practice when applying soil mechanics, analysing data and solving problems involving unsaturated soils. It includes written versions of contributions to the workshop titled ‘The State of Practice in Unsaturated Soil Mechanics’ held at the 19th ICSMGE, run under the auspices of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and TC106 the technical committee concerned with unsaturated soils within the ISSMGE.
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.
