Deformation Characteristics of Geomaterials / Comportement DES Sols Et DES Roches Tendres: Proceedings of the 3rd International Symposium, is Lyon 03, Lyon, France, 22-24 September 2003

The main themes of this conference are experimental investigations into deformation properties - from very small strains to beyond failure, laboratory, in-situ and field observation interpretations, and behaviour characterization and modelling. Emphasis is placed on exploring recent investigations into time-related stresses, and on applying advanced geotechnical testing to real engineering problems.
