Effect of a Shock-Absorbing Material on Seismic Responses of the Longitudinal Buried Tunnel Using Theoretical Analysis and Finite Element Modeling

Underground structures such as tunnels are one of the important elements in the transportation network that may show different seismic behavior compared to structures built on the ground due to being buried in the ground and bearing high stresses.

Seismotectonic Studies to Determine the Recurrence of Earthquakes Mw > 7 Using a Statistical Approach and Plate Motion in the Megathrust Western Part of Java

We propose calculating the earthquake return period based on statistical approaches and the properties of plate convergence at Java Trench. The tectonic characteristic can be known from the b-value and the number of earthquakes is represented by …

The Influence of Different Karst Cave Filling Material Strengths on Stratum Stability During Shield Tunneling

When shield tunnel passes through karst strata, the existence and development of karst caves will inevitably affect the safety of tunnel construction. Therefore, the karst caves in the construction area must be filled, and the backfill strength of …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Geotechnical and Geological Engineering publishes papers in the areas of soil and rock engineering and also of geology as applied in the civil engineering, mining and petroleum industries. The emphasis is on the engineering aspects of soil and rock mechanics, geology and hydrogeology, although papers on theoretical and experimental advances in ground mechanics are also welcomed for inclusion.

The journal encompasses a broad spectrum of geo-engineering although several areas have been identified which will be given particular priority:

Soil and rock engineering;

Foundation engineering;

Applied geology for design and construction;

Geo-environmental engineering;

Earthquake engineering and dynamic behavior of soils and rocks;

Geohazards and mitigation;

Mining engineering;

Geotechnical aspects of petroleum engineering;

Information technology applications in geo-engineering;

Novel geotechnical construction techniques;

Case histories describing important geo-engineering projects.

Geotechnical and Geological Engineering publishes contributions in the form of original and review papers, or as short technical notes. A Book Review section informs the discerning reader of the type and quality of literature available to the geotechnical engineer and engineering geologist.
