Describes theoretically and practically the revolution in the study of geomechanics and geomaterials that numerical modelling has made possible through examples of such factors as chemical
This book gives an excellent overview and in-depth treatment of all aspects of bifurcation analysis in geomechanics. This is sophisticated and powerful technology, which can be exploited not only
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
In this volume, experts describe how methods of analysis and modelling are used to answer questions associated with geomechanics, and give an insight into future directions of those methods.
approach to geomechanics is the essence of this book. In general, soil mechanics and geotechnical textbooks describe first the concepts and theoretical developments and then apply them to interpret or solve
Product Description: This book contains recent advances on theory of mixtures in geo-mechanics. It presents all the necessary material that is published and scattered in different journals. The book
This book is the condensed outcome of the "International Workshop on Modern Trends in Geomechanics" held in Vienna, Austria 27- 29, June 2005. It presents fundamental aspects of theoretical
