This extended and revised second edition elaborates on techniques for the numerical analysis of beams, long strips, circular plates, and circular-cylindrical tanks resting on elastic foundations and on unyielding or elastic supports. Emphasis is placed on the simplicity of analysis, while maintaining the accuracy of results, and a large number of examples are included as illustration. Easy-to-use, fully-revised software is included which runs smoothly under current Windows operating systems. The applicability of the software is extended to analysis of laterally-loaded piles and bending analysis of retaining walls. A bonus suite of complementary software containing programmes for elastic-plastic soil-structure interaction analyses of beams or strips, laterally-loaded piles or sheet-piles, and long retaining walls is also included. This package of numerical techniques and software provides a powerful tool which renders design analysis of structures easy and time-efficient. Practising engineers will find this title invaluable, while postgraduate students and researchers working in soil-structure interaction will also find the book-software package very useful.
