Sound Geotechnical Research to Practice, GSP 230, honors Robert D. Holtz II, Ph.D., P.E., D. GE, Dist.M.ASCE, for his contributions to the geotechnical engineering profession in the areas of soft ground construction, reinforced soils, and fundamental soil behavior. In addition, Dr. Holtz has furthered education in engineering nationally and internationally and has made a significant impact building connections between industry and the academic community in the Puget Sound region of Washington. This collection contains 39 papers that concentrate on applied geotechnical engineering research and practice in geosynthetics, laboratory testing, ground improvement, and reinforced soil walls, slopes, and embankments. Seventeen papers are reprints of works authored or co-authored by Dr. Holtz, and 22 invited papers were contributed by colleagues from around the world. Sound Geotechnical Research to Practice contains technical and practical information on soil behavior that will be of interest to educators, researchers, practicing geotechnical engineers, and contractors.
