“Design and practice of geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures”<br />

Oct. 14–16, 2013, in Bologna, Italy
Call for abstracts

This international symposium is held to honor the research achievements of Prof. Dov Leshchinsky, a world-renowned researcher and educator on reinforced soils and professor of geotechnical engineering at the University of Delaware for more than 30 years.

The symposium will be held under the auspices of:

Symposium topics include:

  • geosynthetic-reinforced soil retaining walls
  • geosynthetic-reinforced soil slopes
  • construction of reinforced embankments over soft soil
  • geotextile tubes
  • geosynthetic-reinforced soil structures for railways and highways
  • properties of backfill soils, geosynthetics, and soil-geosynthetic interaction

Special and keynote lectures by:

  • Prof. Leshchinsky (USA), “Design approaches to geosynthetic-reinforced walls and slopes.”
  • Daniele Cazzuffi (Italy), “Geosynthetics engineering.”
  • J.D. DiMaggio (USA), “Geosynthetic-reinforced soil walls and slopes—best practices in design and construction and reality: Why they differ.”
  • J. Koseki (Japan) and S. Shibuya (Japan), “Mitigation of disasters by earthquakes and rains/floods by means of geosynthetic-reinforced soil retaining walls.”
  • Nicola Moraci (Italy), “Soil-geosynthetic interaction—design parameters from experimental and theoretical analysis.”
  • Fumio Tatsuoka (Japan), “Laboratory stress-strain tests for developments in geotechnical engineering research and practice” (Bishop Lecture revised for geosynthetics engineering).

Abstracts should be submitted online, with further instructions available here.

Deadline for abstract submission: May 31, 2012

Organizing Committee:

Fumio Tatsuoka, Tokyo University of Science, Japan

Guido Gottardi, University of Bologna, Italy

Hoe I. Ling, Columbia University, USA

Jie Han, University of Kansas, USA
