  • Notes on Geoplasticity

    1st Edition

    By William G. Pariseau

    This book is about geoplasticity, solid mechanics of rock, jointed rock and soil beyond the domain of a purely elastic deformation. Plastic deformation is irreversible and begins at the limit to elasticity with any attempt at further loading. Stress at the limit to elasticity is "strength" which is…

  • Unsaturated Soil Mechanics with Probability and Statistics

    1st Edition

    By Ryosuke Kitamura, Kazunari Sako

    Soil is fundamentally a multi-phase material – consisting of solid particles, water and air. In soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering it is widely treated as an elastic, elastoplastic or visco-elastoplastic material, and consequently regarded as a continuum body. However, this book explores…
