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.

Herausforderung Elektromobilität für die Niederspannungsnetze – ein Bericht

Die stark zunehmende Zahl der Elektrofahrzeuge in Vorarlberg, Österreich, stellt die Niederspannungsnetze vor große Herausforderungen. Bereits bei geringen Durchdringungsraten kann es zu Grenzwertverletzungen bezüglich der Spannungen und Kabelauslastungen kommen. Besonders die steigenden Leistungsspitzen werden zukünftig hohe Netzinvestitionen mit sich bringen. Erste weitreichende Untersuchungen zeigen, dass eine hohe Durchdringungsrate nur integriert werden kann, wenn Ladestrategien weiterentwickelt und schrittweise in die Niederspannungsnetze etabliert werden. Um die Elektromobilität volkswirtschaftlich einbinden zu können, müssen dazu alle Interessensvertreter ihren Beitrag leisten.  Jetzt gratis downloaden!
