The civil engineering industry is a pillar industry for the development of the national economy. With the development of society and science and technology, the scale, function, shape and construction technology of civil engineering buildings are developing in the direction of large-scale, complex, diversified, and informatization. Therefore, it’s the inevitable trend of the future development of civil engineering to study new processes, new technologies and new materials.

Geosynthetics materials are regarded internationally as the "fourth largest building material" after steel, cement, and wood. It is an indispensable new type of geotechnical engineering material in the construction of social infrastructure, which have been widely applied in Water conservancy, electric power, construction, seaport, mining, military industry, environmental protection and other national economic construction areas.

In recent years, with the promotion of the rapid development of infrastructure construction in China and the Belt and Road initiative, Civil Engineering construction faces many key problems, while the research and application of geosynthetics materials is welcoming new development opportunities. This special issue will serve as a window for Chinese technology to enter the world and an important channel for Sino-foreign exchanges.
