About this book

This book establishes the equations of limit analysis and provides a complete theoretical basis for foundation capacity, slope stability, and earth pressure. It is divided into three parts, the first of which discusses the failure mode and fundamental equation of soil mass. The second part addresses the solution methods for limit analysis, including the characteristic line method, stress field method, limit equilibrium method, virtual work equation-based generalized limit equilibrium method and generalized limit equilibrium method for the surface failure mode. Lastly, the third part examines the application of the limit analysis theory to soil mass.

About the authors

Professor Chuanzhi Huang graduated from Nankai University, Tianjin. He is a professor-level senior engineer and an expert in port geotechnical engineering. Professor Huang has been engaged in foundation calculation theory, port engineering software development, and analysis and calculation for port engineering. He developed a type of port engineering software (“foundation computing system”) and proposed the generalized limit equilibrium method. He has presided over 20 key projects, such as the 9th national “Five-Year” scientific and technological projects Deepwater Hub Construction of Key Technologies and Demonstration Projects. He has received more than 10 provincial and ministerial level awards for his scientific and technological achievements, holds 6 patents and has published more than 30 papers.
