About the research

Abstract:

Implementation of geotechnical asset management (GAM) offers a significant opportunity to improve the general geotechnical practice through the development of design and management approaches that require consideration of the tradeoffs between least risk and life-cycle costs. The product from this work must be an adaptable implementation manual with the necessary template tools for an agency to recognize the benefits of GAM.
