Communication of design risk within a transparent and rational framework is necessary in view of the increasing interest in code harmonization, public involvement in defining acceptable risk levels, and risk-sharing among client, consultant, insurer, and financier. Activities in code harmonization are particularly noteworthy. For the geotechnical engineering profession, there is added pressure for it to undergo a significant revamp because structural and geotechnical design are increasingly incompatible. The contributions in this volume tackle the important issues relating to new generation geotechnical design codes, in a bid to move geotechnical engineers forward together with the significant changes occurring at the global level.
