Mechanics of Reinforced Soil

By Andrzej Sawicki Copyright 2000

    This text presents the mechanical aspects of reinforced soil (RS) behaviour. Beginning with simple reinforced soil models, it discusses various aspects of this material, such as properties of its constituents, and stresses and strains in reinforced soil, up to the more complex analysis of RS structures. Its scope and level ensures it will be a valuable resource for students, academics and geotechnical engineering professionals alike.
