|Abstract:||Numerous papers included within the broad subject of geomaterials have been published in QJEGH over the past 50 years. These have been compiled and divided here into three main categories: aggregates, building stone and earthworks. The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive summary of the relevant papers published in QJEGH with a view to identifying the main areas of interest historically, now and in the future. Some clear trends are evident from the survey and review; for example, there has been a steady interest in building stone and in particular its deterioration, a decline in papers on earthworks and an increase in those on ground improvement (also covered here). It is also noted that methods of characterizing geomaterials are becoming more sophisticated with advancing technology. The review makes relevant links with other Special Publications from the Geological Society, including also Engineering Geology Special Publications.|
