Géotechnique Letters themed issue: Geomechanics across the scales
Guest Editor: Professor Itai Einav, School of Civil Engineering, University of Sydney, Australia and Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering, University College London, UK
Volume 2, October, 2012
This inaugural themed issue for Géotechnique Letters presents 12 research papers written by some of the most prominent contributors in the emergent field of Geomechanics across the scales.
All papers where submitted between April– May 2012 and have benefited from the journal's rapid publication, fostering the quick exchange of the latest ideas and international advances.
