International Symposium on Backwards Problem in Geotechnical Engineering and Geotechnical Failure and Monitoring -Towards ISO on Construction Control on Geotechnical Engineering –

Organized by
TC-302 Forensic Geotechnical Engineering, ISSMGE and ISO/TC182 Working Committee in Japan under the Auspices of Japanese Geotechnical Society and its Kansai Branch

Backwards problem in geotechnical engineering is to identify the process to the final states of geotechnical phenomenon as the most likely scenario that is explained through geotechnical fact data. Backwards problem usually consists of three steps. The first step is to identify the problem of final results of success or failure in geotechnical phenomenon as well as the initial state and condition. The second step is to assume all possible processes of scenarios from the initial state to the final result. The final step is to select the most likely scenario(s) based upon such as evidence of tests and monitoring.
