Book Description

This work reviews soil mechanics in the light of critical state soil mechanics. A number of exercises are provided, and a microcomputer program, "Cris", used for simulation of the behaviour of soil samples subjected to triaxial tests through the critical state models, accompanies the text.

Table of Contents
