A guide to engineering geological soil description
Order DGF bulletins
The purpose of the bulletin series of the Danish Geotechnical Society is to inform about activities and news within the areas soil mechanics, environmental geotechnics, geotechnical engineering and applied engineering geology. The bulletin work is coordinated by the Publication and IT Committee.
An overview of the bulletins published so far is shown below. Most of the bulletins can be ordered online, and some of them can be downloaded in pdf-format. In order to download you need to log in as member of the Danish Geotechnical Society.

The bulletins are published in series with identical layout and distinct by the colour of the cover as described below.
Blue – soil mechanics (Bulletins 4, 13, 20, 22 and 25)
Articles or textbook sections from the educational institutions or research institutions.
Green – geotechnical engineering (Bulletins 5 and 21)
Case stories, description of piling techniques etc. from the practitioners.
Grey – design practice (Bulletins 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18)
Practical use of theory and tests as well as considerations in relation to codes of practice. Includes the handbooks of the Danish Geotechnical Society.
Yellow – engineering geology (Bulletins 1, 3, 6, 12 and 19)
Illustrates the interaction between geotechnical engineering and engineering geology. Articles illustrating the use or the properties of the soil types from other points of view than the traditional geotechnical one can typically be published.
Brown – environmental geotechnics and marginal soil engineering (Bulletin 8)
Primarily environmental geotechnics articles. But also articles from other marginal areas that support and complement the field of geotechnical engineering.
Red – English-language (Bulletins 1E, 2, 7, 10, 11, 23 and 24)
Public image of the society and the members. Feature articles that describe Danish methods, theories, etc. Danish articles published in international journals and in connection with conferences. Proceedings from conferences and symposiums arranged by the Danish Geotechnical Society.
The bulletin series is published for the members of Danish Geotechnical Society that subscribe to the series through their membership. If a bulletin has a relatively narrow audience, it can be downloaded from the web site in stead of being published as a printed publication.
In addition, certain publications will be of educational interest and for that reason, special deals on purchase of class sets can be made.
