Benchmarking is of significant importance in geological and geotechnical engineering, for testing and verifying innovative soil investigation methods and foundation solutions. This Special Issue aims to present detailed characterization of a wide range of natural soils used for benchmarking in geological and geotechnical engineering that was presented at the ISGTS symposium in Oslo in June 2019. It also seeks to promote an increase in use of the benchmark sites as a research tool, as training and teaching facilities and as ground for development of new soil models, testing of new investigation methods and to further advance the state-of-the-art in the fields of geological and geotechnical engineering.
