Geotechnical engineering is the branch of engineering dealing with the design, construction, analysis of foundations, slopes, retaining structures, embankments, tunnels, levees, wharves, landfills and other systems that are made of or are supported by soil or rock.
It plays a key role in all civil engineering projects built on or in the ground, and it is vital for the assessment of natural hazards such as earthquakes, liquefaction, sinkholes, rock falls and landslides.
Foundation of a structure is always constructed below the ground level so as to increase the lateral stability of the structure. It includes the portion of the structure below the ground level and is built, so as to provide a firm and level surface for transmitting the load of the structure on a large area of the soil lying underneath. The solid ground on which the foundation rests is called the Foundation Bed.

About the Journal Civil and Environmental Engineering deals with the design, construction, maintenance, and application of science and engineering principles to improve the natural environment. Building Material Building material is the material used in the purpose of construction.
Soil Moisture Soil moisture is a source of water for evapotranspiration over the continents, and is involved in both the water and the energy cycles. Environmental Engineering Environmental engineering deals with the combination of sciences and engineering principles to improve the natural environment, to provide healthy water, air, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to clean up pollution sites.
Environmental Impact Environmental impact assessment is the formal procedure used to anticipate the environmental consequences of a plan, policy, program, or project prior taking the decision to move forward with the proposed action. Environmental Issues Environmental issues are destructive impacts of human activity on the environment.
Water Resource Water resources are sources of water that are useful or potentially useful. Material Engineering Materials Engineering discovers approaches to utilize and improve existing materials and then come up with new materials.
Pollution Control Pollution is defined as the existence of contaminants in the natural environment that cause adverse change. Academy of Management Online Journals The CIs were invited by email to participate in the study, with non-responders sent a reminder email after one week and then followed-up by telephone up to three times. The feasibility of determining the impact of primary health care research projects using the Payback Framework. A method for the detailed assessment of the appropriateness of medical technologies.
After adjusting for baseline levels of minutes riding, there was a significant increase in the total mean number of minutes riding in the intervention area compared with the comparison area.
Impact Factor List Examination of patterns differentiating high, moderate and low overall impact intervention research at the verification panel and further thematic analysis of interview transcripts identified six key factors that particularly contributed to these impacts.
This suggests that adoption of project findings into policy and practice are influenced by factors other than evidence of effectiveness. Policy and practice impacts of applied research: Policy, Practice and Research,. Free full text Overall, practice impacts appeared to largely flow from policy impacts.
Autonomous vehicles, popularly known as self-driving cars, have the potential to transform travel behavior. However, existing analyses have ignored strategic interactions with other road users. In this article, I use game theory to analyze the interactions between pedestrians and autonomous vehicles, with a focus on yielding at crosswalks. Because autonomous vehicles will be risk-averse, the model suggests that pedestrians will be able to behave with impunity, and autonomous vehicles may facilitate a shift toward pedestrian-oriented urban neighborhoods.
At the same time, autonomous vehicle adoption may be hampered by their strategic disadvantage that slows them down in urban traffic. Skip to main content. Journal of Planning Education and Research.
