Introduction to Unified Strength Theory

1st Edition

Mao-Hong Yu, Shu-Qi Yu
May 29, 2019

Strength theory deals with the yield or failure of materials under complex stress state. It is very important in mechanics of materials, strength of structures, and mechanical and civil engineering. Unified strength theory is a series of yield criteria and failure criteria other than a single...

The Material Point Method for Geotechnical Engineering: A Practical Guide

1st Edition

James Fern, Alexander Rohe, Kenichi Soga, Eduardo Alonso
January 22, 2019

This practical guide provides the best introduction to large deformation material point method (MPM) simulations for geotechnical engineering. It provides the basic theory, discusses the different numerical features used in large deformation simulations, and presents a number of applications --...

Deep Rock Mechanics: From Research to Engineering: Proceedings of the International Conference on Geo-Mechanics, Geo-Energy and Geo-Resources (IC3G 2018), September 21-24, 2018, Chengdu, P.R. China

1st Edition

Heping Xie, Jian Zhao, P G Ranjith
December 13, 2018

At present, deep earth resources remain poorly understood and entirely under-utilised. There is a growing appreciation of the important role deep earth will play in future sustainability, particularly in opportunities for new and sustainable large-scale energy alternatives, and extraction of...

Soil Mechanics Through Project-Based Learning

1st Edition

Ivan Gratchev, Dong-Sheng Jeng, Erwin Oh
November 21, 2018

The currently available soil mechanics textbooks explain theory and show some practical applications through solving abstract geotechnical problems. Unfortunately, they do not engage students in the learning process as students do not "experience" what they study. This book employs a more engaging...

Site Investigation using Resistivity Imaging

1st Edition

Sahadat Hossain, Golam Kibria, Sadik Khan
August 10, 2018

Subsurface investigation is the most important phase of any civil engineering construction or development activities. The geologic conditions can be extremely complex, variable, and subject to change with time; soil test borings and in-situ tests are employed to obtain subsoil information....
