"Geotechnical Compendium I" provides a collection of the best articles from the year 2000. The papers, selected by the Editors, are taken from the following journals:

Computers and Geotechnics

Geotextiles and Geomembranes

International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences

Journal of Terramechanics

Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering

Tunnelling and Underground Space Technology


For all Geotechnical Engineers, students and researchers involved in the field, who want a critically selected collection of the premier research articles published by Elsevier Science, during 2000.
