Interests: geoenvironmental engineering: settlement mechanics of bioreactor landfills; stability analysis of bioreactor landfills; geotechnical properties of municipal solid waste (MSW); properties and behavior of soils: scouring at bridge piers; shear strength properties of soils
Geotechnical engineering aspects are central and critical to most problems of environmental control. Design, construction, operation and maintenance of solutions to such environmental problems require a thorough understanding in Environmental Geotechnics. It is an interdisciplinary field that has become popular among engineers (mainly geotechnical, environmental, water resources), scientist as well as geologists. Typical subjects covered in this area include contaminant transport, dredged soils, industrial wastes, geosynthetics, landfills (bioreactor and traditional), municipal solid waste, site remediation, tailing dams. Modeling, testing, monitoring, risk assessment and sustainability in geoenvironmental engineering are among the other emerging topics. “Advances in Environmental Geotechnics” presents the latest developments and novel findings in this interdisciplinary field.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
