About these proceedings

Introduction

This volume is of interest to practical engineers. It discusses some contemporary issues related to soil mechanics in earthwork projects which are critical components in civil construction and often require detailed management techniques and unique solution methods to address failures. Being earth bound, earthwork is influenced by geomaterial properties at the onset of a project. Hence, an understanding of the in-situ soil properties is essential. Slope stability is a common problem facing earthwork construction, such as excavations and shored structures. Analytical methods for slope stability remain critical for researchers due to the mechanical complexity of the system.  Striving for better earthwork project managements, the geotechnical engineering community continues to find improved testing techniques for determining sensitive properties of soil and rock, including stress-wave based, non-destructive testing methods. To minimize failure during earthwork construction, past case studies and data may reveal useful lessons and information to improve project management and minimize economic losses. This volume discusses these aspects using appropriate methods in a simple way. The volume is based on the best contributions to the 2nd GeoMEast International Congress and Exhibition on Sustainable Civil Infrastructures, Egypt 2018 – The official international congress of the Soil-Structure Interaction Group in Egypt (SSIGE).

Dr. Mounir Bouassida is a professor of civil engineering at the "Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tunis" of the "Université de Tunis El Manar" where he earned his B.S., M.S., Ph.D., and doctorate of sciences diplomas, all in civil engineering. He is the director of the Research Laboratory in Geotechnical Engineering and has supervised 16 Ph.D. and 29 master of science graduates. His research focuses on soil improvement techniques and behavior of soft clays. Dr. Bouassida is the (co)author of 87 papers in refereed international journals; 126 papers, including 18 keynote lectures; and three books. He is a member of the editorial committees of journals Ground Improvement (ICE), Geotechnical Geological Engineering, Infrastructure Innovative Solutions, and International Journal of Geomechanics (ASCE).  He is also an active reviewer in several international journals. As a 2006 Fulbright scholar, Bouassida created a novel methodology for the design of foundations on reinforced soil by columns. He was awarded the 2006 S. Prakash Prize for Excellence in the practice of geotechnical engineering. In 2008, Bouassida launched a Tunisian consulting office in geotechnical engineering, SIMPRO. He is a co-developer of the software Columns 1.01 used for designing column-reinforced foundations. Prof. Bouassida held the office of the vice president of ISSMGE for Africa (2005–2009). He benefited from several grants as a visiting professor in the USA, France, Belgium, Australia, Vietnam, Hong-Kong and Norway.
