Abstract

Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference – GEOMATE 2018: Geotechnique, Construction Materials and Environment, Tokyo, Japan, 20-22 November, 2019.

Welcome to the GEOMATE 2019 - The Ninth International Conference on Geotechnique, Construction Materials and Environment, GEOMATE 2019, will be held in Hotel Continental Fuchu, Tokyo, Japan in conjunction with the Japan Association for Pulling-out Existing Piles, Mie University Research Center for Environmental Load Reduction, The GEOMATE International Society, The Society of Materials Science, Japan, The Useful Plant Spread Society, Japan, Glorious International, AOI Engineering, HOJUN, CosmoWinds and Beppu Construction, Japan.

On Friday 11 March 2011, at 14:46 Japan Standard Time, the northeast of Japan was struck and severely damaged by a series of powerful earthquakes which also caused a major tsunami. This conference was first dedicated to the tragic victims of the Tohoku-Kanto earthquake and tsunami disasters. The Geomate 2018 conference covers three major themes with 17 specific themes including:

● Advances in Composite Materials
● Computational Mechanics
● Foundation and Retaining Walls
● Slope Stability
● Soil Dynamics
● Soil-Structure Interaction
● Pavement Technology
● Tunnels and Anchors
● Site Investigation and Rehabilitation
● Ecology and Land Development
● Water Resources Planning
● Environmental Management
● Public Health and Rehabilitation
● Earthquake and Tsunami Issues
● Safety and Reliability
● Geo-Hazard Mitigation
● Case History and Practical Experience

Alike earlier conferences, this year we have received many paper submissions from different countries all over the world, including Australia, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Uganda, United Kingdom and Vietnam. The technical papers were selected from the vast number of contributions submitted after a review of the abstracts. The final papers in the proceedings have been peer reviewed rigorously and revised as necessary by the authors. It relies on the solid cooperation of numerous people to organize a conference of this size. Hence, we appreciate everyone who supports as well as participate in this joint conference.

Last but not least, we would like to express our gratitude to all the authors, session chairs, reviewers, participants, institutions and companies for their contribution to GEOMATE 2019. We hope you enjoy the conference and find this experience inspiring and helpful in your professional field. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming conference next year.

Best regards,
Prof. Zakaria Hossain, Prof. Mie University, Japan
