Overview

Many major cities are built on stiff sedimentary clays and the increasing demands for large earthworks, major foundations, deep excavations and tunnels, often in close proximity with each other, stretches our scientific understanding and engineering skills to their limits. The fourteenth Geotechnique Symposium in Print, returned to geo-materials, focusing on the genesis and engineering behaviour of stiff sedimentary clays and was divided into four sessions - Formation and engineering geology of stiff clays; Laboratory and in situ techniques and their interpretation; Engineering characterisation of stiff clay formations and material models; and Engineering in stiff clays.

This book includes all the related papers, by leading international researchers, published in Géotechnique along with keynote speeches, informal discussions on key submissions that were presented at the Symposium at the Institution of Civil Engineers on 14 May 2007 and additional papers, published in Geotechnique between 2000 and 2006, which add further insights on the major topics of the Symposium.

Contents:

Keynote Speeches
Session 1: Formation and Engineering Geology of Stiff Clays - 3 Papers
Session 2: Laboratory and In Situ Techniques and their Interpretation - 5 Papers
Session 3: Characterisation of Formations and Material Models - 5 Papers
Session 4: Engineering in Stiff Clays - 4 Papers
Selected related articles from Géotechnique - 4 Papers

Readership:
Stiff Sedimentary Clays provides practitioners and researchers with an ideal opportunity to be updated on recent research on advanced geotechnical engineering in stiff clays which are of increasing importance as we shape the infrastructure of the 21st century.
