Now fully updated in this third edition, ICE Handbook of Geosynthetic Engineering offers a comprehensive overview of geosynthetics and their various applications. Global challenges, including climate change, are impacting how researchers and engineers provide sustainable solutions to field problems using geosynthetics, geometrical and material variations. Geosynthetic manufacturers are trying to meet the requirements of the specific field problems by regularly introducing new materials. Understanding this wealth of information and knowing what methods to adopt or disregard have made the field of geosynthetics a difficult one to keep up with. However, this book collates this complex information into one easy-to-read and clear volume. 
  
With the inclusion of five brand new chapters and contributions from global experts in the field, this volume covers geosynthetics in the context of  

  • basic details of geosynthetics and fibres, and soil-geosynthetic interaction 
  • filters and drains 
  • retaining walls, embankments and slopes, including seismic aspects 
  • shallow and deep foundations 
  • transport structures, including roads, runways and railways 
  • landfills, earth and tailing dams, ponds, reservoirs and canals
  • ports, waterways and coastal structures 
  • hydraulic and transport tunnels, and shafts 
  • field application guidelines, and sustainability considerations.
This book is required reading for practising engineers in all areas of civil engineering, and in some specific areas of mining, agricultural and aquacultural engineering. It is also of considerable interest for researchers, students and geosynthetic manufacturers looking for the latest information on geosynthetics.

Sanjay Kumar Shukla is Founding Research Group Leader (Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering) at the School of Engineering, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Australia.
