About this Research Topic

Manuscript Submission Deadline 21 September 2022

To meet the needs of constantly growing populations worldwide, there is an urgent need to create a strong, durable, and resilient civil infrastructure. However, given the current state of global environmental challenges and the scarcity of natural resources, it is imperative to opt for sustainable practices in civil engineering construction. Sustainability principles promote environmentally friendly practices with a focus on reduction in energy consumption, lower carbon emission, and use of recycled and waste materials in the construction.

Geosynthetics are polymeric materials used extensively in a variety of geotechnical engineering applications to enhance the performance of the geomaterials. Geotextiles, geogrids, geocells, geonets, geo-composites, and geofoams are some of the common types of geosynthetics used in the construction industry. Geosynthetics play a major role in developing sustainable civil infrastructure due to their high strength, durability, lightweight, and environmentally friendly properties. The geosynthetics facilitate easier and faster construction, thereby reducing the project's cost and energy requirement.



This research topic aims to provide a collection of timely and high-quality papers on the use of geosynthetics to develop sustainable and resilient civil infrastructure. The interest of the research topic includes applications of geosynthetics in the following topics (but are not limited to):

• Geo-structures (foundations, slopes, embankments, earth retaining structures, etc.)

• Roadways and railways

• Coastal, hydraulic, and waterfront structures

• Tunneling and underground space

• Waste management facilities

• Recycled and waste materials

• Geosynthetics testing

• Any other innovative use of the geosynthetics


This special issue welcomes all types of contributions related to geosynthetics, ranging from fundamental research to practical implementations.

Keywords: Geosynthetics, Sustainable construction, Environment, Geomaterials, Geo-infrastructure


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
