Modelling of Cohesive-Frictional Materials Proceedings of Second International Symposium on Continuous and Discontinuous Modelling of Cohesive-Frictional Materials (CDM 2004), held in Stuttgart 27-28 Sept. 2004
This progressive volume of lectures, written by leading experts on current developments in the field, is a must-read for engineers in physics, mechanics and engineering applications alike. Focusing on both continuous and discontinuous modelling, this topical symposium raises the issue of cohesive-frictional materials and the importance of understanding their mechanical behaviour in determining their correct use in engineering and scientific applications. A subject that has attracted a great deal of attention from scientists and engineers, from a variety of fields, this book is not only essential reading for professionals within the discipline, but also an insightful text for graduates wanting to learn more about the topic.
