TC211 Workshop Guimarães 2016

The Transportation Geotechnics International Conference series began under the auspices of ISSMGE-TC3 and was initiated in 2008 at the University of Nottingham, UK, as an International event designed to address the growing requirements of infrastructure for societies. The 2nd International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics took place in 2012, at Sapporo, Japan, under the ISSMGE-TC202 that follows the TC3 activities for the period 2009-2013. To continue the success of these conferences and the output of ISSMGE-TC202, the 3rd was scheduled for 2016, at Guimarães, Portugal. Following the previous one, the challenges addressed by this conference included a better understanding of the interactions of geotechnics on roads, rails, airports, harbours and other ground transportation infrastructure with the goal of providing safe, economic, environmental, reliable and sustainable infrastructures.

Within the framework of this conference, a TC211 Workshop dedicated to Ground Improvement and soil stabilization was organized resulting finally in the publication of the following e-book, referred:
