About this book

Plasticity and Geotechnics is the first attempt to summarize and present, in one volume, the major developments achieved to date in the field of plasticity theory for geotechnical materials and its applications to geotechnical analysis and design. The author believes that there is an urgent need for the geotechnical and solid mechanics community to have a unified presentation of plasticity theory and its application to geotechnical engineering.

In its thorough, comprehensive treatment of the subject, the book covers classical, recent, and modern developments of appropriate constitutive theories of stress-strain relations for geomaterials and a wide range of analytical and computational techniques that are available for solving geotechnical design problems. The emphasis is on key concepts behind the most useful theoretical developments, the inter-relation of these concepts, and their implementation in numerical procedures for solving practical problems in geotechnical engineering.

Audience

This book is intended for academics, researchers, postgraduate and upper-level undergraduate students and practising engineers in soil mechanics, rock mechanics, geotechnical engineering, and civil engineering.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book presents plasticity theories of geomaterials … and their applications to geotechnical analysis and design. The author analyses classical, modern and recent developments of constitutive relations for geomaterials and a number of analytical and computational techniques for solving geotechnical design problems. … The book can serve as a valuable reference for researchers, teachers and students in soil mechanics, rock mechanics, geotechnics and civil engineering." (Olivian Simionescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1151, 2009)
