                                                           JGS Kansai Branch

                This symposium has been executed with a grant from
        the Commemorative Organization for The Japan World Exposition ('70)
 The mitigation of geohazards is an important problem in geotechnical engineering. Heavy rains, typhoons
and earthquakes are the main causes of geohazards. Due to changes in climate and extreme weather,
geohazards are found all over the world. The Kansai branch of the Japanese Geotechnical Society (JGS)
established a technical committee on the Mitigation of Geohazards in River Basins in 2006, and it has been
doing site investigations on the geohazards brought about by heavy rains and typhoons. On the other hand,
Technical Committee 34 (TC34) of the ISSMGE on Prediction and Simulation Methods in Geomechanics has
been working on prediction and simulation methods for geomechanics. In particular, TC34 focuses on
analyzing unstable behavior of the ground, such as strain localization, which is a precursor of the failure of the
ground, liquefaction, landslides, seepage failure, etc. TC34 of ISSMGE on Prediction Methods in Large Strain
Geomechanics was established in 2001 after the Istanbul Conference. Since then, TC34 had been
successfully managed by Chairperson Professor Vardoulakis of Athens, Greece under the support of JGS,
and a portion of their goals has been achieved through the promotion of exchanges among academic and
practicing members. After the 16th ISSMGE in Osaka, TC34 was reestablished as Prediction and Simulation
Methods in Geomechanics. Members of the Kansai branch of JGS and TC34 of ISSMGE decided to organize
an international symposium on Prediction and Simulation Methods for the Geohazard Mitigation. The
symposium provides a forum for discussing new prediction and simulation methods for geohazards and for
exchanging ideas and information on topics of mutual interest. This symposium will mark the 60th anniversary
of JGS and the 50th anniversary of the Kansai branch of JGS. The symposium is sponsored by the JGS, the
Kansai branch of the JGS, TC34 of ISSMGE, TC34’s supporting committees of JGS and the Commemorative
Organization for the Japan World Exposition(’70).

The themes of prediction and simulation methods for geohazard mitigation include:
  1. Mechanisms of geohazards, namely, heavy rains, floods, typhoons, earthquakes, landslides, slope and
      snow slides, tsunamis, land subsidence, coastal erosion, etc.
  2. Numerical and analytical simulation methods for geohazards, including conventional and advanced
      methods, FDM, FEM, Extended FEM, DEM, SPH and MPM.
  3. Advanced constitutive modeling of geomaterials and numerical implementations and constitutive
      parameterdetermination using laboratory and field test results.
  4. Thermo-hydro-mechanical instabilities, namely, large deformations, strain localization, progressive
      failure, liquefaction, ground water flow analysis, the rapid flow of complex geofluids such as mud flow,
  5. Monitoring and non-destructive investigative methods for geostructures during/after floods,
      earthquakes, heavy rains, etc. and design methods.
  6. Evaluation of existing prediction methods, performance-based design methods aided by advanced
      numerical modeling, risk analysis, and the management of mitigation programs.
  7. Case records of geohazards and mitigation projects.

 A total of 89 papers on the above topics have been contributed from 18 countries. The members of the
Organizing Committee and the International Advisory Committee reviewed 116 papers. We believe that all of
the papers, presentations, and discussions during the symposium will open the door to new areas of research
and engineering for the mitigation of geohazards. We wish to express our sincere thanks to the authors of the
contributed papers for their resourceful papers and to the members of the International Advisory Committee
and the Organizing Committee for their valuable support and review of the manuscripts. Acknowledgements
are also given to the Japanese Geotechnical Society, the Kansai branch of the Japanese Geotechnical
Society, and ISSMGE.
