Reinforced soil is radically re-shaping our built environment. Consider the expansion of Sea-Tac Airport (USA) atop 50 meters of reinforced soil, or examine almost any new bridge. Reinforced soil also lurks as a threat. Collapse of a 75 meter tall geogrid structure at Yeager Airport, West Virginia (USA), destroyed a 50-home community in March 2015. Engineers sometimes refer to reinforced soil as magic, but we would never refer to reinforced concrete as magic. Mechanics must replace magic. This book investigates the mechanics of internal stability with basic plasticity and elasticity. It addresses both steel and geosynthetics, providing a unique but controversial perspective that promotes a re-unified theory of plasticity, applicable to steel and soil alike emphasizes both verification and validation in geotechnical engineering research demonstrates inaccuracy of strain gauge data for composites, especially reinforced soil raises awareness that much geotechnical software violates the geometry of stress space Because this information is not readily available elsewhere, the book is self-contained, but it expects the reader to be competent in calculus and mechanics of materials. This book provides a one semester course for an adventurous few. Note: this international edition uses SI units.

This book is intended to serve as a one-stop reference on fibre-reinforced soils. Over the past 30-35 years, the engineering behaviour of randomly distributed/oriented fibre-reinforced soil, also called simply fibre-reinforced soil, has been investigated in detail by researchers and engineers worldwide. Waste fibres (plastic waste fibres, old tyre fibres, etc.) create disposal and environmental problems. Utilization of such fibres in construction can help resolve these concerns. Research studies and some field applications have shown that the fibres can be utilized in large quantities in geotechnical and civil engineering applications in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly manner. This book covers a complete description of fibres, their effects when included within a soil or other similar materials such as the fly ash, and their field applications. It gives a detailed view of fibre-reinforced soil engineering. The book will be useful to students, professional, and researchers alike, and can also serve as a text for graduate coursework and professional development programs

During the last ten years, our understanding of the perfect plasticity and the associated flow rule assumption on which limit analysis is based has increased considerably. Many extensions and advances have been made in applications of limit analysis to the area of soil dynamics, in particular, to earthquake-induced slope failure and landslide problems and to earthquake-induced lateral earth pressures on rigid retaining structures. The purpose of the book therefore is in part to discuss the validity of the upper bound work (or energy) method of limit analysis in a form that can be appreciated by a practicing soil engineer, and in part to provide a compact and up-to-date summary of recent advances in the applications of limit analysis to earthquake-induced stability problems in soil mechanics.

Geosynthetics and their applications is a book to which students (at all levels) and engineers in search of novel approaches to solutions for civil engineering problems can refer. The topics presented are based on major field application areas for geosynthetics in civil engineering. The straightforward and concise presentation of topics in the book will be helpful for those with limited experience of geosynthetics, while more experienced users will easily be able to find information relating to solutions to specific engineering problems. The inclusion of case histories and practical aspects of the application of geosynthetics, along with recent developments and references, makes this book a valuable resource for practising engineers, students and researchers alike.

This textbook presents finite element methods using exclusively one-dimensional elements. The aim is to present the complex methodology in an easily understandable but mathematically correct fashion. The approach of one-dimensional elements enables the reader to focus on the understanding of the principles of basic and advanced mechanical problems. The reader easily understands the assumptions and limitations of mechanical modeling as well as the underlying physics without struggling with complex mathematics. But although the description is easy it remains scientifically correct. The approach using only one-dimensional elements covers not only standard problems but allows also for advanced topics like plasticity or the mechanics of composite materials. Many examples illustrate the concepts and problems at the end of every chapter help to familiarize with the topics.

This book is addressed primarily to civil engineers familiar with such traditional topics as strength of materials, soil mechanics, and theory of elasticity and structures, but less familiar with the modern development of the mathematical theory of soil plasticity necessary to any engineer working under the general heading of nonlinear analysis of soil-structure system. This book will satisfy his needs in the case of the soil medium. It introduces the reader to the theory of soil plasticity and its numerical implementation into computer programs. The theory and method of computer implementation presented here are appropriate for solving nonlinear static dynamic problems in soil mechanics and are applicable for finite difference and finite element computer codes. A sample computer model subroutine is developed and this is used to study some typical soil mechanics problems. With its comprehensive coverage and simple, concise presentation, the book will undoubtedly prove to be very useful for consulting engineers, research and graduate students in geotechnical engineering.

Plasticity and Geotechnics is the first attempt to summarize and present in a single volume the major achievements in the field of plasticity theory for geotechnical materials and its applications to geotechnical analysis and design. The book emerges from the author’s belief that there is an urgent need for the geotechnical and solid mechanics community to have a unified presentation of plasticity theory and its application to geotechnical engineering.
