Description

Innovative and state-of-the-art, using clear illustrations and numerous worked examples, this book explains core, yet highly complex, topics such as critical state modelling, centrifuge modelling, pressuremeter testing and finite element modelling. Applied Analyses in Geotechnics will enable the reader to make informed judgements about appropriate analytical parameters and allow for greater understanding of results and their implications.

Reviews

The book aims to make the transition between theoretical analyses and applied design methods. - Ground Engineering
