The IGS’s scientific journal Geotextiles & Geomembranes is inviting abstracts for its special edition on ‘Digital Imaging Techniques in Geosynthetic Applications’.
Guest Editors Professors Madhavi Latha and Toshi Mukunoki will be exploring the developments in using digital imaging to make measurements in geotechnical engineering. Applications with this technique include measuring material characterizations, collecting data, response tracking, damage detection and failure analysis.
The issue aims to bring together the latest advances and help raise awareness of these new techniques among researchers and practitioners.
The special issue invites original contributions related to experiments, analysis, development of construction methods and materials, construction management and maintenance, monitoring and measurement, and damage diagnosis in geosynthetic engineering, with themes that could include:
- Digital Image Correlation for deformation tracking
- Particle image velocimetry for deformation tracking
- Digital Microscopy for geosynthetic characterizations
- Optical profilometry for geosynthetic testing and quality control
- X-ray and CT imaging in geosynthetic research
- GPR imaging for investigations in geosynthetic reinforced soils
- UAV Photogrammetry for condition monitoring of geosynthetics
- Remote sensing imagery for hazard monitoring of GRS structures
- Terrestrial Laser Scanning for performance monitoring of GRS structures
- Studies on geosynthetics in transparent soils
Abstracts should be no more than 500 words and include the title of the proposed paper. Submissions should clearly highlight the novelty of the work, method, and significant findings that will be presented in the paper.
The deadline for abstract submission is May 31, 2022, with full papers required by August 31, and revisions due October 31 and November 31. Successful papers will be published in the edition on December 31.
To submit, simply email your entry to one of the guest editors:
