A compilation of about 100 papers, this volume examines the challenges inherent in designing new infrastructure, often on problematic ground, and the management and maitenance of aging assets in the face of issues such as climate change. Topics covered include slope instability, stabilisation, and asset management; construction on soft ground; interaction with structures and geogrid reinforced soil; effect of climate change and vegetation; highways, pavements and subgrade; railway geotechnics; soil improvement; characterisation and recycling of geomaterials; and unbound aggregate materials as used in pavement construction and drainage.
