Geotechnical engineering is a key link for all engineering construction to establish and interact with the earth, including foundation engineering, slope engineering, tunnel engineering and mining engineering, etc. To promote the sustainable development of geotechnical engineering, it is necessary to make full use of the bearing capacity of rock and soil mass, reduce the amount of building materials with high carbon emissions, such as concrete and reinforcement, and reduce the quantity of work. To achieve engineering construction objectives, it has become a hot topic of global concern to transform the rock and soil mass, improve the anti-floating, anti-flood and anti-seismic capabilities of geotechnical engineering, avoid the pollution, damage and influence of the ecological environment around the geotechnical engineering site.
The aim of Advancing Sustainability in Geotechnical Engineering is to require geotechnical engineers to actively respond to various natural disasters, implement energy conservation and emission reduction, and achieve friendly, coordinated and sustainable development of geotechnical engineering and ecological environment during the investigation, design and construction stage. In addition, in this special issue, we hope to showcase original and innovative papers highlighting the most challenging new methods, materials, equipment and techniques relevant to promoting sustainable development in geotechnical engineering.
This Research Topic accepts the submission of manuscripts covering different topics, from pure and fundamental research to more applied demonstrations and integrated case studies. Specifically, this topic will cover, but is not limited to, the followings:
- New methods of geotechnical exploration, design and construction
- Innovative equipment for in-situ testing of geotechnical engineering
- Multi-phase and multi-field coupling analysis of rock and soil mass
- Mechanical properties and applications of new geocomposite materials
- Stability analysis and intelligent control technology of geotechnical engineering
- Contaminant migration and remediation technology of rock and soil mass
- Reinforcement technology of mining damaged rock and soil mass
- Cross - scale analysis and control of geotechnical disasters
- Dynamics characteristics analysis of rock and soil mass
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
