Abstract

This General Report presents a summary of the 22 papers accepted for the Session 4 focused on Case Histories on Failure and Remediation of Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering, including landslides and Lessons from Recent Earthquakes, and Case Histories on Engineering Vibrations, Vibration Control for Underground and Surface Constructions, with Specific Emphasis on the Urban Environment; Predictions, Monitoring and Solutions; Blasting for Tunnels in Soft Ground and Rock, Discontinuous Rocks and their Application to Water Resources Projects, and Remediation. The papers originate from twelve countries and cover significant topics and projects in the area of geotechnical earthquake engineering, and engineering vibration. These include liquefaction, liquefaction mitigation, lessons from recent earthquakes, landslides, DEM simulation, soil dynamic properties, seismic settlements, seismic hazard and ground motions, seismic waves, site amplification, foundation piles, MSE walls, vibrations and base isolation. Table 1 below presents a list of the accepted papers ordered by topic. The summaries below will provide readers with a general overview of the focus of the papers and is intended to direct the readers to areas of interest. The Session 4 organizers greatly appreciate the efforts of the authors and commend the quality of the accepted papers.
