SIXTH PAN-AMERICAN SOIL MECHANICS AND FOUNDATION ENGINEERING CONGRESS, LIMIA, PERU, 2-7 DECEMBER 1979

SEXTO CONGRESO PANAMERICANO DE MECANICA DE SUELO E INGENIERIA DE CIMENTACIONES, LIMA, PERU, 2-7 DICIEMBRE 1979

The proceedings of the VI Pan-American Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering Congress, which was held in Lima (Peru) from 2 to 7 December 1979, are published in two volumes. The first volume collects the papers presented in the 1st session and includes several papers on the state of the art in soil mechanics generally and its application to the study of the foundations of structures: compacted cohesive soils, stability of slopes, dynamic behaviour of soils and soil-structure interaction. The second volume includes selected technical papers which were grouped into three further sessions. The 2nd session comprises articles concerning the dynamic behaviour of soils, tests used and their application to civil engineering works. The 3rd session analyses various problems of foundations and soil-structure interaction: deep excavations, foundation footings, loading tests, pile stability and settlements and weather-dependent factors in the behaviour of soils and foundations. The 4th session studies various properties of compacted soils and the influence of the compressibility and the in situ behaviour of fills of a numbe of variables such as ageing, drying, compaction energy, percentage of fines and microstructure.
