About this book

The book presents a new approach for the solution of geomechanical problems - it explicitly takes into account deformation and fracture in time, which are neglected in classical methods although these properties create important effects. The method reveals the influence of the form of a structure on its ultimate state. It uses the rheological law which accounts for large strains at a non-linear unsteady creep, an influence of a stress state type, an initial anisotropy and damage. The whole approach takes into account five types of non-linearity (physical as well as geometrical ones) and contains several new ideas. For example, it considers the fracture as a process, the difference between the body and an element of the material which only deforms and fails because it is in the structure, the simplicity of some non-linear computations against the consequent linear ones, the dependence of the maximum small strain in dangerous poins of the body only on the material.

Professor Elsoufiev included many new solutions of non-linear geotechnical problems to this second edition.

 

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book presents a new analysis of the solutions for geomechanical problems, tacking into account nonlinear effects, fracture and damage of structures. … The work is organized in 6 chapters, followed by 14 appendices and a bibliography. … The book is recommended to civil engineers and geologists." (Olivian Simionescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1116 (18), 2007)
