With the American infrastructure scoring a D+ in the most recent ASCE’s Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, the push to invest in the same is bound to increase. For this investment to be fruitful, innovative and economical construction practices would be required. As such, infrastructure innovation in geotechnical design will become increasingly important.

The Geotechnical Group of the ASCE Cincinnati Section issued a Call for Papers for the 48th Annual Ohio River Valley Soils Seminar (ORVSS XLVIII) in Cincinnati, Ohio, a few months ago. The emphasis was “Infrastructure Innovation in Geotechnical Design” and the authors were asked to highlight innovative techniques in geotechnical design, instrumentation, investigation, construction, etc of various types of infrastructure, including, but not limited to, roads, bridges, tunnels, railway, dams and levees, power plants, etc.

The goal of ORVSS XLVIII is to provide geotechnical engineers, geologists, contractors, material suppliers, and other geotechnical practitioners an opportunity to share experiences on previous projects in the geotechnical aspects of infrastructure to continue the advancement of our professional field. 

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Timothy D. Stark, Professor

“2D and 3D Unsaturated and Transient Seepage Analyses for Landside Excavations near Levees and Floodwalls”
