In addition to providing a basic to detailed definition of geoforensics, the presentation will summarize components of a forensic investigation and the varied causation components to the failure or problem. Each component will be discussed in detail with salient examples of actual case histories the presenter has investigated.Although case histories discussed are geotechnical in nature, the principles are directly applicable to civil engineering problems.
