                           Aims & Scope

                           Geomechanics is concerned with the application of the principle of
                           mechanics to earth-materials (namely geo-material). Geoengineering
                           covers a wide range of engineering disciplines related to geo-materials, such
                           as foundation engineering, slope engineering, tunnelling, rock engineering,
                           engineering geology and geo-environmental engineering.

                           Geomechanics and Geoengineering is a major publication channel for
                           research in the areas of soil and rock mechanics, geotechnical and
                           geological engineering, engineering geology, geo-environmental engineering
                           and all geo-material related engineering and science disciplines. The Journal
                           provides an international forum for the exchange of innovative ideas,                                                                                                                    Submission Instructions
