About the Journal

International Journal of Geological and Geotechnical Engineering [2581-5598(e)] is a peer-reviewed hybrid open-access journal launched in 2015 that is concerned with the engineering behavior of earth materials and mining. The journal also focuses on the dynamic behavior of the soil, rocks, earthquake mechanics, and other important fields of civil engineering that deal with geological and geotechnical engineering.

Focus and Scope

  • Soil and rock mechanics: Behaviour of soils, soils consist, Soil partials, mechanical behavior of rock and rock masses, rock bolting patterns, Soil composition, Soil mineralogy, Grain size distribution, Sieve analysis, Hydrometer analysis, Mass-volume relations.

  • Earthquake engineering: Earthquake fault types, plate boundaries, Shallow-focus and deep-focus earthquakes, Earthquakes and volcanic activity, Earthquake clusters.

  • Offshore geotechnical engineering: Ground improvement, Soil conditions, Offshore structures, Offshore structures, Cyclic loading, wider range, onshore developments, Design focuses, The offshore environment, wind, waves, currents, and Metocean aspects.

  • Ground improvement: Soil Stabilisation, Vibro Stone Columns, Jet Grouting, Deep Soil Mixing, Dynamic Compaction, ground improvement system.

  • Field characterization of soils: Soil structure, Soil color, Soil consistency, Soil texture, Soil abundance of roots, rocks, and carbonates, and subsurface conditions.

  • Waste and waste management: Waste segregation, Landfill, Types of waste, Life-cycle of a product, Biological reprocessing, composting, Waste valorization, beneficial reuse, value recovery, waste reclamation.

  • Foundations and soil–structure interaction: soil liquefaction., ground-structure system, Soil types, Foundation types.

  • Landslides and slope stability: slope movement, natural and artificially-made slopes, embankments, earth dams, road cuttings, soil mass, gravitational forces, potential dynamic loads, steep and remote slopes, soils, and rock masses.
