The proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Stress Wave Theory and Design and Testing Methods for Deep Foundations are published and available online.

During the conference, it was noted that reading papers from previous conferences is a great help for new, upcoming research studies. For students at the start of their master’s thesis, for PhD students to get more in-depth information and background knowledge, and for innovations in the foundation and testing industry. Knowing what has been done before by others, avoid inventing the wheel twice.

Proceedings of conferences, including the previous ten editions of the Stress Wave Conference, are sometimes hard to find. Or costly once found. Therefore, the organizing committee of the 11th edition of the Stress Wave Conference provides all proceedings for free. Open access, and with the necessary DOI, which make them findable and citable.

The proceedings can also be downloaded from or from the community website of the KIVI, the Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers.
