  • Geotechnics of Roads: Fundamentals

    1st Edition

    By Bernardo Caicedo

    At first glance, roads seem like the simplest possible geotechnical structures. However, analysis of these structures runs up against complexities related to the intense stresses experienced by road surfaces, their intense interaction with climate, and the complicated behavior of the materials used…

  • Soil Mechanics Through Project-Based Learning

    1st Edition

    By Ivan Gratchev, Dong-Sheng Jeng, Erwin Oh

    The currently available soil mechanics textbooks explain theory and show some practical applications through solving abstract geotechnical problems. Unfortunately, they do not engage students in the learning process as students do not "experience" what they study. This book employs a more engaging…

  • Dynamical Systems-Based Soil Mechanics

    1st Edition

    By Paul Joseph

    This book is a short yet rigorous course on a new paradigm in soil mechanics, one that holds that soil deformation occurs as a simple friction-based Poisson process in which soil particles move to their final position at random shear strains. It originates from work by Casagrande’s soil mechanics…

  • Time-Dependency in Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering

    1st Edition

    By Ömer Aydan

    This book is concerned with time-dependency in rock mechanics and rock engineering, whose spectrum is very wide. While the term “time-dependency” involves time-dependent behavior/rate-dependent behavior of rocks in a conventional sense, this books attempts to cover the spectrum as much as possible…
