Foreword to Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering
The Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS) was began because the Indian Nationwide Society of Soil Mechanics and Basis Engineering within the yr 1948, quickly after the Second Worldwide Convention on Soil Mechanics and Basis Engineering held at Rotterdam.
The Society was affiliated to the Worldwide Society in the identical yr, and since then, it has strived to fulfil and promote the targets of the Worldwide Society.
In December 1970, the identify ‘Indian Geotechnical Society (IGS)’ was adopted. The Society performed a number of symposia and workshops in numerous components of India since its inception in 1948.
Within the yr of 1983, the Indian Geotechnical Society organized its first annual convention IGC 1983 in Indian Institute of Know-how Madras.
A number of native chapters of the Society had been established over time, and steadily, the annual conferences had been held in numerous cities underneath the management of the respective native chapters.
The conferences had been effectively utilized because the venue for showcasing the analysis works and the case research on geotechnical engineering and geoenvironmental engineering, and the papers introduced through the deliberations had been being revealed as convention proceedings quantity.
The annual conferences IGC 1996 and IGC 2006 had been organized by IGS Chennai Chapter, and the papers had been revealed as printed volumes.
The observe of printing the volumes was later discontinued in view of huge expenditure concerned and additionally due to the simple entry to the digital storage media.
The papers then grew to become not accessible to the remainder of the geotechnical neighborhood. The duty of organizing the annual convention of 2016 was taken up by IGS Chennai Chapter, and the convention was held throughout 15–17 December 2016.
It was felt essential to publish chosen papers for the good thing about all the geotechnical engineering neighborhood in addition to of the contributing authors.
The Chapter approached Springer with a request to take up this duty, and with the nice assist of Springer, about 150 chosen papers are being revealed in 4 volumes underneath the sequence ‘Lecture Notes in Civil Engineering’.
The chosen papers are distributed amongst these volumes relying upon the subject of debate.
Quantity 1: Geotechnical Characterisation and Geoenvironmental Engineering
Quantity 2: Floor Enchancment Methods and Geosynthetics
Quantity 3: Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering
Quantity 4: Geotechnical Purposes
I’m grateful to all the overall editors and the reviewers of those papers who offered beneficial assessment feedback for the betterment of the papers revealed in these volumes.
The assist offered by the previous President of the Indian Geotechnical Society, the late Prof. Sreerama Rao, and the previous Honorary Secretary of IGS, Shri Jai Bhagwan, is gratefully acknowledged right here.
Bringing out these volumes underneath the banner of prestigious publishers, Springer will immensely enhance the visibility of those convention proceedings volumes.
The Chennai Chapter of the Indian Geotechnical Society locations on report its acknowledgement of the efforts put forth by Springer for bringing out these volumes for the good thing about the geotechnical engineering neighborhood.
