Codes and standards are rapidly developed to satisfy the need for harmonization of Geotechnical Engineering Practice. Recent trends in Geotechnicalcodes and standards are to follow the limit state design, reliability design and performance based design. Codes and standards differ in different parts of the world such as Eurocode in Europe, LRFD in USA etc. In this section related publications for Codes and standards are provided.
