Geotech at a Glance

A new Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Web site dedicated to geotechnical engineering (www.fhwa.dot.gov/engineering/geotech/) brings together a range of resources in one convenient location. "The topic-based framework for the new Web site allows the user to easily search and locate FHWA technical and program solutions to geotechnical challenges engaging the transportation community," says Corey Bobba, Geotechnical Engineer in FHWA's Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division office.

The site's featured technology areas are earth and rock works, earth retaining structures, geotechnical hazards, ground improvement, structural foundations, and subsurface investigation. Each technology area includes information on publications, software, policy memos, training and workshop opportunities, research, and staff contacts.

A resource-based view of available information is accessible in the "All Resource Types" section, which lists details on software, training, workshops, conferences, research, and publications for all of the technology areas. An extensive list of links to related Web sites is also featured, including those of the Transportation Research Board, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the American Society of Civil Engineers' Geo-Institute.

Additional topic-based Web sites launched by FHWA during the past year include hydraulics engineering (www.fhwa.dot.gov/engineering/hydraulics/) and pavements (www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/).
