About this book

This set of books presents the proceedings of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering's (ISSMGE) 5th International Congress on Environmental Geotechnics, held in Wales, UK in June 2006. The congress brings together practitioners, academics and the public sector to highlight the latest ideas and developments in environmental geotechnics and related fields.

Consisting of 1658 pages with contributions from over 200 eminent authors from across the globe, this 2-volume set presents current thinking and practice and demonstrates how issues associated with environmental geotechnics continue to be a major concern for governments, public and private organisations and the worldwide community in general.

To ease usability and searches, the papers in these books are organised according to the session during which they were presented at the congress.
