Editorial Reviews

Contains some 100 papers selected for presentation at the Seventh International Symposium on Numerical Models in Geomechanics held in Graz, Austria in September, 1999. Organized into five sections, the papers cover constitutive relations for geomaterials; modelling of instabilities and strain localization in geomaterials; numerical algorithms; modelling of transient/coupled and dynamic problems; and the application of numerical techniques to practical problems. Some new developments are reported in the areas of partially saturated soils; instabilities in soil behavior; environmental geomechanics; parallel computing and applications to tunnels, embankments, slopes, foundations, and anchors. Of likely interest to researchers as well as practicing engineers. Contributions are reproduced from their original typescripts. Lacks subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
