Biogeotechnics is an interdisciplinary journal that bridges the gap between bioengineering, bionics and earth science engineering, particularly in the areas of bio-mediated design such as biomineralization, soil bioengineering using vegetation and fungi and bio-inspired design in the applications of geotechnical engineering. The journal aims to publish original studies on the experimental and theoretical aspects of bio-mediated and bio-inspired solutions in the geotechnical system, including laboratory and field testing, computational methods, design principles and site investigation.
Biogeotechnics focuses on interdisciplinary topics on the application of microbially mediated processes, biomaterials, vegetation, fungi and bio-inspired design methods, in geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering, rock engineering, pavement engineering, geological engineering, as well as offshore and marine engineering. Topics of interest include numerical and analytical methods in soil and rock mechanics with bio-mediated and bio-inspired solutions; constitutive modelling in bio-mediated soil and rock including elasticity, plasticity, creep, localization, fracture and instabilities; neural networks, expert systems, optimization and reliability; statics and dynamics of interacting structures and foundations with bio-mediated and bio-inspired solutions; liquid and gas flow through geologic bio-reinforced media, contaminant transport and groundwater problems with bio-mitigation; geohazards mitigation in earthquakes, landslides and subsidence; soil/rock improvement with bio-mediated and bio-inspired method; and the development of bio-mediated and bio-inspired models validations using laboratory and field measurements.
