This book presents a new method for solving geomechanical problems - one that explicitly takes into account deformation and fractures of soils, which create important effects, but are neglected in classical approaches. The method reveals the influence of the form of a structure on its ultimate state. The entire approach takes into account five types of physical as well as geometrical non-linearity, and highlights the simplicity of some non-linear computations against the consequently linear ones.
The 98 papers from the December 1999 symposium report on new technologies and monitoring approaches in field geotechnical instrument measurements, and case studies on geotechnical projects.
This volume presents the results of investigations of the physiomechanical properties and processes of deformation and failure of rock masses. The thermodynamic processes occurring during such phenomena are considered.
