More About This Textbook


These proceedings contain 106 papers which reflect the current research and advances made in the applications of numerical methods to geotechnical engineering problems. The papers are divided in six sections: Constitutive relations for geological materials: formulation and verifications; Instability and strain localisation in geomaterials; Modelling of reinforced soil; Modelling of transient/coupled problems; Numerical Algorithms: formulation and performance; Application of numerical techniques to practical problems. Many new developments on a wide variety of topics have been reported. These include: Partially saturated soils, transition from fully to partially saturated state and vice versa, strain localistation, environmental geomechanics, parallel computing, neural networks and applications to tunnels, embankments, slopes and foundations. A number of these advances will form the basis of research and development in the future. A wealth of information is available in the proceedings which should be of interest to researchers as well as practising engineers.

Editorial Reviews

Over 100 papers explore formulating and verifying constitutive relations for geological materials, the localization of instability and strain in geomaterials, modeling reinforced soil, modeling transient/coupled problems, and the formulation and performance of numerical algorithms. They also describe the application of numerical techniques to practical problems relating to tunnels and underground structures, piles and foundations, slopes, embankments and dams, and other structures. Among the topics are partially saturated soils, the transition from fully to partially saturated state and vice versa, environmental geomechanics, parallel computing, neural networks, and the effects of input earthquake waves and hydraulic conditions on soil layer response.
