Organic soils are considered one of the most problematic soils due to their high compressibility and low shear strength at small strains. Characterizing organic soils based on their simple index properties is useful for the preliminary design …. The stability of the pavement system on old Ogbomoso-Ilorin road in southwestern Nigeria basement complex was investigated. This was carried out by estimating the suction, degree of saturation and effective stress of the soils within vadose zone ….

Geoengineering, which refers to all types of engineering that deal with Earth materials, such as geotechnical and geological engineering, is at a crossroads. With the rapid expansion of nanotechnology, biotechnology, and information technology, it is time to consider how these new approaches might come into play in developing better solutions for geotechnological problems. Aimed primarily at National Science Foundation NSF program managers and the geotechnical engineering community, this report presents a vision for the future in the new millennium-pointing to important changes in the practice of the field. For example, the report recommends that geoengineers should look to new technologies and approaches to solve problems more efficiently. NSF should help facilitate this process by funding programs to train researchers in new technologies through interdisciplinary initiatives, such as continuing education programs. These and other steps outlined in the report will help move the field forward, enabling geoengineers to expand their role in helping to solve some of our most pressing problems, including global climate change, emission-free energy supply, global water supply, and urban systems.
Authors: S. Naeini , M. Shallow foundations on unimproved soft natural soils can undergo a high consolidation and secondary settlement. For low and medium rise building projects on such soil condition, pile foundation may not be cost effective. In such cases an alternative to pile foundations may be shallow strip footings placed on a double layered improved soil system soil.

An engineering geologist is a geologist trained in the discipline of engineering geology. Many organizations and governments have programs for the qualification, testing and certification of engineering geologists as a protection to the public. Engineering geologists commonly work with civil engineers , structural engineers, architects , developers and planners, to ensure that the geologic factors affecting the location, design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineering works are recognized and adequately accounted for.

The charge to this committee—to envision the future of geotechnology—is at once a grand challenge and a problem. In many ways, geotechnology is a mature field having come to its majority in the last 50 years. Many serious problems have been solved. We know how to build strong foundations, safe dams, and stable roads and tunnels. We have a good understanding about the behavior and protection of groundwater, how to extract the petroleum resources, and develop a geothermal field.
Но Соши, опередив его, уже отдала команду. - Утечка прекратилась! - крикнул техник. - Вторжение прекращено. Наверху, на экране ВР, возникла первая из пяти защитных стен. Черные атакующие линии начали исчезать. - Происходит восстановление! - кричал Джабба. - Все становится на свои места.
ГЛАВА 58 - Меган - девушка моего друга Эдуардо! - крикнул панк Беккеру. -Держись от нее подальше. - Где она? - Сердце Беккера неистово колотилось. - Пошел к черту. - У меня неотложное дело! - рявкнул Беккер.
Мне в самом деле пора идти, они связи, обещаю. - Дэвид! - крикнула. - Что… Но было уже поздно. Дэвид положил трубку.
