Flood management planning and design of flood control facilities has evolved in recent years. Today, management of floods include planning and construction of facilities such as dams and detention facilities, coordinated operations of the reservoirs with flood control reservations, improvement of flood channels and levees, watershed management and proper land use planning. Flood control refers to all methods used to reduce or prevent the detrimental effects of flood waters. Floods are caused by many factors: heavy rainfall, highly accelerated snowmelt, severe winds over water, unusual high tides, tsunamis, or failure of dams, levees, retention ponds, or other structures that retained the water. Flooding can be exacerbated by increased amounts of impervious surface or by other natural hazards such as wildfires, which reduce the supply of vegetation that can absorb rainfall.

Physical Modelling in Geotechnics collects more than 1500 pages of peer-reviewed papers written by researchers from over 30 countries, and presented at the 9th International Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics 2018 (City, University of London, UK 17-20 July 2018). The ICPMG series has grown such that two volumes of proceedings were required to publish all contributions. The books represent a substantial body of work in four years. Physical Modelling in Geotechnics contains 230 papers, including eight keynote and themed lectures representing the state-of-the-art in physical modelling research in aspects as diverse as fundamental modelling including sensors, imaging, modelling techniques and scaling, onshore and offshore foundations, dams and embankments, retaining walls and deep excavations, ground improvement and environmental engineering, tunnels and geohazards including significant contributions in the area of seismic engineering. ISSMGE TC104 have identified areas for special attention including education in physical modelling and the promotion of physical modelling to industry. With this in mind there is a special themed paper on education, focusing on both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching as well as practicing geotechnical engineers. Physical modelling has entered a new era with the advent of exciting work on real time interfaces between physical and numerical modelling and the growth of facilities and expertise that enable development of so called ‘megafuges’ of 1000gtonne capacity or more; capable of modelling the largest and most complex of geotechnical challenges. Physical Modelling in Geotechnics will be of interest to professionals, engineers and academics interested or involved in geotechnics, geotechnical engineering and related areas. The 9th International Conference on Physical Modelling in Geotechnics was organised by the Multi Scale Geotechnical Engineering Research Centre at City, University of London under the auspices of Technical Committee 104 of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE). City, University of London, are pleased to host the prestigious international conference for the first time having initiated and hosted the first regional conference, Eurofuge, ten years ago in 2008. Quadrennial regional conferences in both Europe and Asia are now well established events giving doctoral researchers, in particular, the opportunity to attend an international conference in this rapidly evolving specialist area. This is volume 1 of a 2-volume set.

Outstanding advances have been achieved on Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering and Microzonation in the last decade mostly due to the increase in the recorded instrumental in-situ data and large number of case studies conducted in analyzing the observed effects during the recent major earthquakes. During the 15th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering held in Istanbul in August 2001, the Technical Committee of Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering, (TC4) of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering organised a regional seminar on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Microzonation where an effort has been made to present the recent advances in the field by eminent scientists and researchers. The book idea was first suggested by the participants of this seminar. The purpose of this book as well as of the seminar was to present the broad spectrum of earthquake geotechnical engineering and seismic microzonation including strong ground motion, site characterisation, site effects, liquefaction, seismic microzonation, solid waste landfills and foundation engineering. The subject matter requires multidisciplinary input from different fields of engineering seismology, soil dynamics, geotechnical and structural engineering. The chapters in this book are prepared by some of the distinguished lecturers who took part in the seminar supplemented with contributions of few distinguished experts in the field of earthquake geotechnical engineering. The editor would like to express his gratitude to all authors for their interest and efforts in preparing their manuscripts. Without their enthusiasm and support, it would not have been possible to complete this book.

Prepared by the Task Committee on Flood Safety Policies and Practices of ASCE. In 2005, the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina graphically revealed the vulnerability of U.S. communities to the loss of life and property resulting from flooding. In the aftermath, the American Society of Civil Engineers issued a call for action to address growing flood losses and threats to public safety. Then, in 2012, Hurricane Sandy found the nation still unprepared and unaware of the magnitude of flood risk. ASCE charged a task committee with investigating the extent to which the lessons learned from the failure of the hurricane protection system during Hurricane Katrina have been incorporated into the planning, design, construction, and management of engineered water resources projects. The investigation would provide a basis for influencing changes in national policy and engineering practice related to flood safety. The committee met with government agencies, the private sector, nongovernmental organizations, and those affected by Katrina and subsequent disasters. The committee concluded that the federal government, in close collaboration with state, tribal, and local governments, concerned public and private organizations, and the public at large, must develop and use forward-thinking flood risk management processes. Doing so would reduce the nationÕs vulnerability to dangers and damages resulting from floods while concurrently protecting natural resources, enhancing the functions of floodplains, and supporting wise and sustainable economic development of appropriate coast and river areas. A must-read for key decision-makers and any member of the public living on or near water, this report highlights the difference between doing what weÕve been doingÑreactively recover from catastrophic eventsÑand doing what we must doÑproactively minimize the life-changing impacts of floods and hurricanes.
