Proceedings of the 2008 Biennial Geotechnical Seminar, held in Denver, Colorado, November 7, 2008. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE; Geotechnical Group of the Colorado Section of ASCE; Rocky Mountain Section of the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists; Colorado Association of Geotechnical Engineers.

This Geotechnical Practice Publication contains 14 papers that address the solving of complex geotechnical and environmental challenges, analysis and rehabilitation of dams and reservoirs, earth retention, and geotechnical innovation.

Topics include:

  • Downtown Redevelopment
  • Construction on Sugar Beet Waste and Expansive Soils
  • Dam Remediation Including Spillways and Sinkholes
  • Soil-Cement Uplift Pressures
  • Internal Erosion in Dams
  • Ancient Mesa Verde Reservoir Embankments

From downtown Denver to the beet plants of eastern Colorado and from the sprawling Front Range suburbs to the Rocky Mountain High Country, Colorado's specific geotechnical practice and experience is the focus of this proceedings. It will be valuable to anyone in geotechnical engineering, especially those working in Colorado or similar geologic settings.
