CHAPTER 8

CASE HISTORIES

8.1Introduction

The methods of geotechnical site characterization are applied in the field as part of every project. The lessons learned in the course of some of these projects provide critical insight, which improve our understanding of the site characterization process and help make significant advances in geotechnical engineering.

Three case histories covering widely different areas of geotechnical engineering are presented in this chapter. The first case history covers conventional geotechnical engineering, focused on characterization of soft, cohesive soils. The second covers earthquake geotechnical engineering, with emphasis on evaluation of liquefaction potential in a granular medium. The third covers geoenvironmental ...
