Description


This book contains the Proceedings of the 3rd International Symposium devoted to recent advances in the study and modeling of T-H-M-C coupling in geomaterials and its applications (GeoProc’2008). Original up-to-date results are presented by leading experts at an international level. Various topics are covered from fundamental developments to engineering applications such as: coupled constitutive models, multi-scale approaches, probabilistic methods, experimental and in situ investigations. Numerical implementation, solutions and case studies are also provided.
