Full-Scale Testing and Foundation Design, GSP XXX, honors Bengt H. Fellenius, Dr.Tech., P.Eng., for his noteworthy efforts to advance foundation engineering research, design, construction, and testing practices. From the beginning in Sweden of his 50-year career as a geotechnical engineer through nearly two decades as a professor of civil engineering at the University of Ottawa, Dr. Fellenius has made outstanding contributions in the international arena to the development and advancement of innovative approaches and practical methods for incorporating full-scale testing in foundation design, especially for deep foundations. This collection contains 51 papers on the use of full-scale testing to enhance the design of foundations. Eighteen papers are reprints of landmark articles authored or co-authored by Dr. Fellenius. Thirty-three additional peer-reviewed papers written especially for this collection present test methods for various types of foundations and describe useful applications in a diversity of situations. These papers offer findings from interesting projects and document valuable lessons learned by some of the leading experts in the field of foundation engineering from around the world. Full-Scale Testing and Foundation Design contains technical and practical information that will be valuable to geotechnical engineers, foundation specialists, researchers, and construction engineers.
