The ‘Geotechnical Engineering’ section of Frontiers in Built Environment publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research across all aspects of the geotechnical engineering field, with a focus on recent advances in evaluation, design methods, construction technologies, and engineering applications.
• Natural, recycled, improved, and manufactured geomaterials, geosynthetics, and smart materials
• Geomaterial laboratory testing, field testing, and geotechnical sensing and monitoring technologies
• Geomechanics, geomaterial-structure interactions, advanced data analyses, numerical analyses, and artificial intelligence method
• Design, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation of structure and pavement foundations, earth structures (walls, slopes, embankments, etc.), substructures (tunnels, large underground and earth-sheltered structures, pipelines, ducts, etc.), and underground space and its interaction with the environment
• Earthworks, ground improvement, and underground construction technologies including trenchless technology
• Geo-hazard/environmental impacts and mitigation and energy geotechnics
• Geotechnical asset management and sustainability assessment
Papers presenting case studies to highlight innovative approaches or reviewing practice to provide guidelines are particularly encouraged. This section also welcomes papers presenting new laboratory campaigns and prototype testing (including research on real time monitoring and surveillance, original data acquisition and elaboration techniques) and improvements of numerical and theoretical methodologies (including mathematical and numerical modelling, machine learning, neural networks, life-cycle analysis).
All work published in this section should be of interest to researchers and practitioners of the built environment. Interdisciplinary research is welcomed, provided that it is relevant to the civil engineering community. Studies of soil and rock properties outside of civil engineering applications do not fit the scope of this section and should be instead submitted to Frontiers in Earth Science.
