The Sixth International Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics (6th ICPMG) was organised by the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in collaboration with the Hong Kong Geotechnical Society (HKGES), under the auspices of ...
TC2 on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). The 6th ICPMG provided an excellent opportunity for academics, engineers, scientists, government officials, planners, researchers and students to present and exchange the latest developments in and findings from physical modelling in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. Papers from over 30 countries and special administrative regions were submitted and reviewed. Volume One contains eight invited keynotes, one state-of-the-art report and 101 accepted papers in the areas of new development of physical modelling facilities and experimental techniques, soil characterisation, slopes, dams, liquefaction, ground improvement and reinforcement, offshore foundations and anchors, and pipelines. Volume Two includes 128 accepted papers that focus on shallow and piled foundations, retaining structures, tunnelling, geoenvironment, complex process modelling and comparisons of results from 1-g to high-g physical modelling, numerical modelling and full-scale testing. Both volumes provide an excellent source of reference on the current practice of physical modelling in geotechnics and environmental engineering.
