The proceedings represent a valuable reference on geotechnical problems peculiar to Africa and for engineering solutions to local problems. Topics covered are: Foundation engineering and lateral support; Methods of design and analysis; Monitoring, laboratory and field testing; Municipal, industrial and mining waste and environmental geotechnics; Soil improvement; Transportation geotechnics; Case studies. The proceedings are also an invaluable source of data on the properties of African soils, the properties of residual and tropical soils, as well as climate related problems.116, No. 1: 54-72.
