Geotechnical Modelling by David Muir Wood
(Applied Geotechnics)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book begins by presenting some of the models which form a part of the typical undergraduate geotechnical curriculum. There is then a description of some of the aspects of soil behavior which contribute to the challenge of geotechnical modelling.

The book is derived from courses given to M level students (postgraduate and final year undergraduate MEng students). A familiarity with basic soil mechanics and with traditional methods of geotechnical design is assumed. The book will also be useful to practising engineers who find themselves involved in the specification of numerical or physical geotechnical modelling.
