Granular Geomechanics

Granular Geomechanics provides a comprehensive exploration of soils as granular materials and the manner in which a soil’s engineering properties form grain-scale mechanics. The book focuses on granular composition and packing, grain interactions, discrete granular modeling and continuum constitutive modeling. Provides a coherent presentation on granular geomechanics for engineers Presents essential background information in each chapter, along with a list of works for further study Uses tensor notation, also including a brief explanation of conventions and operations in the book's appendix

Microscopic re-examination of geomaterials consisting of aggregates can shed light on macroscopic behaviour, including compressibility, anisotropy, yielding, creep, cyclic liquefaction and shear rupture. As a result of this process of examination, new methods of material characterization emerge, leading to a greater degree of accuracy in the specification of new constitutive models with physically-meaningful parameters. The impetus behind this development is an increasing awareness on sustainability, leading to the more efficient use of recycled materials for geotechnical applications. The characteristics of

GET THIS BOOKDeformation and Progressive Failure in Geomechanics

Progressive failure has been a classical problem in the field of geotechnical engineering and has attracted considerable attention in connection with slope stability and foundation problems. It is associated with strain localization or shear banding and is also related to damage in material structures. As knowledge of the progressive failure mechanism increases, it is now necessary to establish effective communications between researchers and engineers. The International Symposium on Deformation and Progressive Failure in Geomechanics provided an opportunity for discussing recent
