Geotechnical engineering, as a branch of civil engineering, can significantly contribute to sustainable development in the construction industry implementing environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solutions. This book will examine the role of sustainability has to play in geotechnical engineering and what the key barriers and enablers are for its adoption in a constructive way. Geotechnical engineering plays a critical role within all infrastructure and development projects. Failure to adequately account for the influence of the ground regularly leads to increased costs that often can be disproportionately high compared to the savings made by such neglect. In this book, a review is made of the scope geotechnical engineering offers towards sustainable development of civil infrastructure. It is aimed to show the importance of sustainable development of the human community from the view point of geotechnical engineering and construction business.
