Plenary Lectures

  • S. Foti*, R. Salgado, R. Lancellotta

    Michele Jamiolkowski was deeply interested in many topics in geotechnical engineering. The link between his many contributions to the discipline was his deep appreciation [...]

  • P. Breul, P. Reiffsteck

    The dynamic penetrometer is a common technique in geotechnical exploration and widely deployed throughout the world. However, while this technique has many advantages, it [...]

  • L. Monforte*, M. Arroyo, A. Gens

    With the advancement of computational geomechanics over the past decades, most of the activities typical of site characterization, such as in situ testing or sampling, can [...]

  • J. Estaire, T. Schweckendiek

    The purpose of this paper is to introduce the geotechnical engineering community to the treatment of uncertainties in site characterization within the framework of the second-generation [...]

  • J. Ching*, K. Phoon

    This paper reviews some recent advancements that address the challenges faced by the broad application area of datadriven site characterization (DDSC). The challenges include [...]

  • C. Comina*

    Geotechnical parameters of linearly extended earth structures, such as embankments and earth dams, are usually obtained from localized investigations through drilling or penetration [...]

  • C. Cornou*

    Site characterization methods to extract the shear-wave velocity (Vs) structure over the first few tens to few hundred of meters or the soil’s resonance frequency using [...]

  • B. Stuyts*

    During geotechnical and geophysical site characterisation for large infrastructure projects, significant data volumes are being collected which need to be processed and interpreted. [...]

  • A. Martinez*, Y. Chen, R. Anilkumar

    Equipment used for site investigation activities like drill rigs are typically large and heavy to provide sufficient reaction mass to overcome the soil’s penetration resistance. [...]
