Correctly understanding, designing and analyzing the foundations that support structures is fundamental to their safety. This book by a range of academic, design and contracting world experts provides a review of the state-of-the-art techniques for modelling foundations using both linear and non linear numerical analysis. It applies to a range of infrastructure, civil engineering and structural engineering projects and allows designers, engineers, architects, researchers and clients to understand some of the advanced numerical techniques used in the analysis and design of foundations.
- Ground vibrations caused by trains
- Pile-group effects
- Bearing capacity of shallow foundations under static and seismic conditions
