Failure in Geomaterials

Failure in Geomaterials offers a unified view of material failure as an instability of deformation modes framed within the theory of bifurcation. Using mathematical rigor, logic, physical reasoning and basic principles of mechanics, the authors develop the fundamentals of failure in geomaterials based on the second-order work criterion. Various forms of rupture modes and material instabilities in granular materials are explored both analytically and numerically with lab experimental observations on sand as a backdrop. The authors provide a clear picture of inelastic deformations and failure of geomaterials under various loading conditions. A unique feature of the book is the systematic application of the developed theory to the failure analysis of some selected engineering problems such as soil nailing, landslides, energy resource extraction, and internal erosion in soils. Provides the fundamentals of the mechanics of geomaterials for a detailed background on the subject Integrates a rigorous mathematical description of failure with mechanisms based on microstructure Helps users apply mathematical models of solid mechanics to engineering practice Contains a systematic development of the fundamentals of failure in heterogeneous multiphasic materials

In the past fifteen years experimental and theoretical characterisation of the pre-failure deformation properties of geomaterials has developed enormously. In recognition of these important research developments a Geotechnique Symposium in Print (SIP) was held at the Institution of Civil Engineers in 1997. This volume brings together the nineteen Geotechnique SIP papers which summarise the recent developments in measuring and understanding the pre-failure stress-strain-time properties of natural soils, and apply this information to practical engineering problems.

Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, either to build upon, or as construction material. They are formed when the rate of rock weathering is more rapid than transportation of the weathered particles by e.g., water, gravity and wind, which results in a large share of the soi
