TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Renewal Project R02 has released a prepublication, non-edited draft of a report titled Geotechnical Solutions for Soil Improvement, Rapid Embankment Construction, and Stabilization of the Pavement Working Platform: Web-Based Information and Guidance System Development Report that describes the development of a web-based information and guidance system, Geotechnical Solutions for Transportation Infrastructure, designed to access critical information on geoconstruction technologies.
The web-based tool is intended to provide the information necessary to determine the applicability of specific geoconstruction technologies to specific situations, and then guide the user to supporting information needed to apply the selected technologies. The tool includes a geoconstruction technology catalog and selection system, as well as sections on geotechnical design philosophy and a geotechnical glossary. You must register before being granted access to the site. To register, click on the “not registered” link.
The Final Phase 2 Summary Report produced under this same project, describes efforts toward mitigating obstacles that prevent widespread use of geoconstruction technologies.
