About this book

Contains the 49 papers from the Wroth Memorial Symposium held in Oxford in 1992. The themes of the symposium were soil properties and their measurement, especially by means of in situ tests, prediction and performance, and design methods.


* Theme report: The key material properties in geotechical engineering need to be measured, instead of being specified * An assessment of seismic tomography for determining ground geometry and stiffnes * The prediction of surface settlement profiles due to tunnelling * Predicting the effect of boundary forces on the behaviour of reinforced soil walls * Settlement predictions for piled foundations from loading tests on single piles * Prediction and performance of ground response due to construction of a deep basement at 60 Victoria Embankment * Predicting earthquake-caused permanent deformations of earth structures * Recollections from the Wroth Memorial Symposium: Predictive Soil Mechanics
