By G. Swoboda Copyright 1988

    This book is based on the papers presented at the 6th International Conference on Numerical Methods in Geomechanics in Innsbruck from 11–15 April 1988. It presents a derivation of an analytical method in due consideration of mechanical interaction between groundwater and surrounding ground.
