United States of America (Chicago)
Westin Chicago Northshore Hotel 601 N. Milwaukee Avenue Wheeling, Illinois 6009

Session Themes

  • Case histories on failures and remediation of slopes, dams, embankments and landfills, including those on landslides and other mass movements (debris flows, mudslides in California, Venezuela and elsewhere) due to rain, flooding, earthquakes, anthropological and other causative factors and failure; static liquefaction of tailing dams; good performance of levees, solid waste landfills and dams

  • Case histories on failure and remediation of retaining structures, slurry walls, and deep excavations, dewatering, stability case histories on failure and remediation of geotechnical earthquake engineering, including land slides; lessons learned from Pisco-Peru 2007, L’Aquila-Italy 2009, Honduras 2009, American Samoa 2009, Haiti 2010, Chile 2010, Baja California 2010, New Zealand 2010 and 2011, Tohoku Japan 2011 and other recent earthquakes; reports on recent earthquakes

  • Case histories on soil property improvement; expansive and collapsible soils for earthquake mitigation; use of lightweight materials; application of geo-synthetics; effects and risks of foundations in freshly loaded filled ancient marshy lands; vanished ports such as Alexandria, Puri-Mahabalipuram and other unknown; site characterization

  • Case histories on forensic geotechnical engineering, where things went wrong; reliability of codes; risk analysis pertaining to public structures, non-destructive evaluation and load testing of drilled shafts, auger cast piles and driven piles, and damage evaluation; advance information, systems in the geotechnical risk predication and assessment

  • Case Histories on health monitoring and retrofit of infrastructure, including bridges, tunnels, and other transportation and geotechnical structures, and their effects on existing facilities and buildings, and remediation
