Realising a technical-engineering creation is usually a complex process, a joint outcome of cooperating experts. This type of work is rather burdened with a certain amount of risks, therefore needs a thoughtful attention. Without this - let the reason be either ignorance, shallowness, irresponsibility, disorganization, lack of necessary funding, or even plethoric power of persons or bodies of any types – the systems built can cause serious damage. In some cases an implementation can result in large amount of financial loss and/or can critically hurt life of human beings.
This book is a compilation of cases of physical damages, focusing on construction engineering and – essentially – demonstrating geotechnical problems, damages and solutions. The aim has been to give a working knowledge of geotechnical engineering, thus the case selection is subjective. The initial base for the collection takes its origin from the content of the workshop organized in Budapest, September 2010 by ISSMGE TC302, the Forensic Geotechnical Engineering Committee with the title “Failures, Disputes, Causes and Solutions in Geotechnics”.Majority of the selection is coming from this workshop, mainly summarizing experiences of Hungarian geotechnical engineers, but with adding some colour with more, invited papers having similar topic.
