  • Cavity Expansion Methods in Geomechanics

    Cavity expansion theory is a simple theory that has found many applications in geotechnical engineering. In particular, it has been used widely to analyse problems relating to deep foundations, in-situ testing, underground excavation and tunnelling, and wellbore instability. Although much research has been carried out in this field, all the ...

  • Faulting in Brittle Rocks

    The book presents an introduction to the mechanical genesis of tectonic faults in the brittle crust of the Earth. In the first chapters mechanical concepts of rock (such as brittleness, stresses in a discontinuum, effective stress, buoyancy, poro-thermo-elasticiy, fracture modes and the corresponding failure and slip conditions) are discussed. The ...

  • Advanced Mathematical and Computational Geomechanics

    Geomechanics is the mechanics of geomaterials, i.e. soils and rocks, and deals with fascinating problems such as settlements, stability of excavations, tunnels and offshore platforms, landslides, earthquakes and liquefaction. This edited book presents recent mathematical and computational tools and models to describe and simulate such problems in ...

  • Dynamic and Transient Infinite Elements

    This monograph aims to provide a state-of-the-art theory and the application of dynamic and transient infinite elements for simulating the far fields of infinite domains involved in many of scientific and engineering problems, based on the author’s own work during the last two decades. While the theoretical aspects of either dynamic infinite ...

  • Granular Dynamic Theory and Its Applications

    Granular Dynamic Theory and Its Applications introduces both theory and applications in detail, including differential dynamical models of granular shearing, dynamical strength characteristics and the excited response of granules subject to vibration, granular liquefaction properties and the mechanisms under vibration, granular flow theory and ...

  • Earthquake Geotechnical Engineering

    The book contains the invited keynote and theme lectures presented at the 4th International Conference on Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering (4ICEGE).

  • Probabilistic Methods in Geotechnical Engineering

    Soils and rocks are among the most variable of all engineering materials, and as such are highly amenable to a probabilistic treatment. The application of statistical and probabilistic concepts to geotechnical analysis is a rapidly growing area of interest for both academics and practitioners. The book is therefore aimed at students, researchers, ...

  • Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering

    ... 'Included on the Choice list with the outstanding academic Earth Sciences titles 2008' ...This volume describes simplified dynamic analyses that bridge the gap between the rather limited provisions of design codes and the rather eclectic methods used in sophisticated analyses. Graphs and spreadsheets are included for the ease and speed of use ...

  • Rock Physics and Natural Hazards

    Natural hazards events such as earthquakes or volcanic eruptions involve activation of coupled thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical processes in rocks.
