Dynamical Systems-Based Soil Mechanics

Paul Joseph
April 24, 2017

This book is a short yet rigorous course on a new paradigm in soil mechanics, one that holds that soil deformation occurs as a simple friction-based Poisson process in which soil particles move to their final position at random shear strains. It originates from work by Casagrande’s soil mechanics...
