Geotechnical problems in transportation and transit systems can lead to significant and costly unplanned maintenance and renewal of transport infrastructures built above the ground. Providing safe, efficient and sustainable transport infrastructure can be challenging owing to complex geotechnical aspects of the ground. Design considerations of rail transport embankments have become critical in view of ever growing demand for high speed passenger and heavy axle freight trains. This issue is designed to accommodate the interests of engineers and researchers in modeling and designing both geomaterials and geostructures that could improve performance, sustainability and life cycle of transportation infrastructures. Developing appropriate models and methods for dealing with design and material issues can be challenging. To address some of these challenges, the topic involves a wide coverage of timely issues on technologies and innovations focusing on broad aspects of geotechnical innovations in order to address global grand challenges and UN’s sustainable development goals with great social and economic importance.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Geotechnical Testing
- Geomechanics
- Geomaterials and Geostructures
- Artificial Inclusions
- Geotechnical Aspects for High Speed Railway
- Analytical and Numerical Methods
- Ground Improvement
- Waste Recycling in Geotechnical Engineering
- Applications and Case Studies in Geotechnical Engineering


Keywords: Geotechniques, Geotechnical Engineering, Geology, Ground improvement, Transportation Infrastructures, Road, Rail, Airfields, Pavement
