Selected Geotechnic Papers of James K. Mitchell is the latest addition to the ASCE series ""Engineering Classics"", which presents selected papers of lasting importance by eminent engineers who have made outstanding contributions to their field. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers, this volume is a collection of 35 key papers published during James K. Mitchell's extraordinary career. His research activities have covered a wide range of topics including experimental and analytic studies of soil behavior related to geotechnical and geo-environmental problems, soil improvement and ground reinforcement, physicochemical phenomena in soils, the stress-strain time behavior of soils, in situ measurement of soil properties, and mitigation of ground failure risk during earthquakes. In addition to teaching, Dr. Mitchell's career has encompassed geotechnical projects ranging from research on hazardous waste landfill stability at Kettleman Hills in California, to lunar soil analysis for NASA Apollo Missions, to working with the Mayor of San Francisco following the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. Dr. Mitchell was elected to both the National Academy of Engineering and the National Academy of Science.
