|Abstract: ||IN THIS ISSUE: Perspectives in Geotechnical Engineering /2 (A Cornell graduate, Robert L. Schiffman, takes a broad view of his specialty field. He is now professor of civil engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder.) ... Foundation Engineering: New Skills in an Ancient Art /7 (Rock, soil, and seafloor sediment present different problems in foundation engineering. Fred H. Kulhawy, associate professor at Cornell, discusses how the field is responding to the requirements of larger and more specialized structures.) ...
Marine Geotechnology: Adventure in Engineering /13 (Underwater projects, including offshore oil and mineral extraction, place heavy demands on geotechnical engineers. The challenge is described by Dwight A. Sangrey, a Cornell professor in the geotechnical engineering area.) ... Engineering Geology: A Combination of Inseparable Fields /21 (Study in geology (at Cornell) and civil engineering prepared Richard E. Goodman for work in his specialty field of engineering geology. A professor at the University of California at Berkeley, Goodman wrote this article while he was a visiting professor at Cornell last fall.) ...
Fracture Mechanics: A New Tool for the Geotechnical Engineer /26 (Geotechnical engineers may have to induce rock fracture or contend with it; in either case, they need a basic understanding of fracture mechanics, explains Anthony R. Ingraffea, assistant professor in Cornell's Department of Structural Engineering.) ... Soil Stabilization: An Answer to Shortages of
Road-Building Materials /31 (Agricultural engineering professor Lynne H. Irwin, leader of Cornell's Local Roads
Program, explains how soil stabilization techniques can improve the performance and durability of low-volume roads.) ...
The Shaping of a Discipline /37 (An historical perspective of the development of geotechnical engineering at Cornell is presented by Thomas D. O'Rourke, who received his undergraduate education in civil engineering here and recently joined the faculty as an assistant professor.) ... Faculty Publications /44|
