This title provides a comprehensive overview of elastoplasticity relating to soil and rocks.
The first half of the book addresses the elastoplasticity of soft soils and rocks, while the second half examines that of hard soils and rocks.
Following a general outline of models of their mechanical behavior and their internal structure, each chapter addresses a specific area of this subject. Written by leading experts in the field, the topics combine each author's particular expertise to deliver a comprehensive treatment of the subject, which is of critical importance to civil and mechanical engineers and geologists, especially those concerned with planning and designing foundations, or with all aspects of geological movement.
