Geomechanics of failures by A. M Puzrin( )

37 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main goal of this introductory course is to demonstrate how basic concepts in soil mechanics can be used as a 'forensic' tool in the investigation of geotechnical failures. This, in turn, provides a good opportunity to show how to use available procedures in the formulation of useful simple geotechnical models
Principles of hyperplasticity : an approach to plasticity theory based on thermodynamic principles by G. T Houlsby( )

27 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Principles of Hyperplasticity is concerned with the theoretical modelling of the behaviour of solids which ungergo nonlinear and irreversible deformation. The approach to plasticity theory developed here is firmly rooted in thermodynamics, so that the models developed are guaranteed to obey the First and Second Laws." "Illustrated with many examples of models derived within this framework, and including material particularly relevant to the field of geomechanics, this monograph will benefit academic researchers in mechanics, civil engineering and geomechanics and practising geotechnical engineers; it will also interest numerical analysts in engineering mechanics."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Constitutive modelling in geomechanics : introduction by A. M Puzrin( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and German and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to bridge the gap between the traditional Geomechanics and Numerical Geotechnical Modelling with applications in science and practice. Geomechanics is rarely taught within the rigorous context of Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics, while when it comes to Numerical Modelling, commercially available finite elements or finite differences software utilize constitutive relationships within the rigorous framework. As a result, young scientists and engineers have to learn the challenging subject of constitutive modelling from a program manual and often end up with using unrealistic models which violate the Laws of Thermodynamics. The book is introductory, by no means does it claim any completeness and state of the art in such a dynamically developing field as numerical and constitutive modelling of soils. The author gives basic understanding of conventional continuum mechanics approaches to constitutive modelling, which can serve as a foundation for exploring more advanced theories. A considerable effort has been invested here into the clarity and brevity of the presentation. A special feature of this book is in exploring thermomechanical consistency of all presented constitutive models in a simple and systematic manner
Bodenmechanik und Grundbau das Verhalten von Böden und Fels und die wichtigsten grundbaulichen Konzepte ; mit 67 Tabellen by H.-J Lang( )

3 editions published in 2007 in German and English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die??bersichtliche Gliederung, die Anwendbarkeit von Berechnungsverfahren mit Tabellen und die Beispiele mit ausgearbeiteten L??sungen f??r??bungen zeichnen dieses kompakte Buch aus. Die Autoren beschreiben das Verhalten von B??den und Fels sowie die wichtigsten grundbaulichen Konzepte. Das Buch beruht auf einem durchgehend grundbaulichen, d.h. praxisorientierten Konzept und geht nicht von der "??blichen" Trennung in Bodenmechanik (oder gar theoretische Bodenmechanik) und Grundbau aus. Es ist "normenfrei," und kann daher in allen L??ndern genutzt werden. Es wendet sich an
Geomechanics of Failures. Advanced Topics by A. M Puzrin( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main goal of this introductory course is to demonstrate how basic concepts in soil mechanics can be used as a 'forensic' tool in the investigation of geotechnical failures. This, in turn, provides a good opportunity to show how to use available procedures in the formulation of useful simple geotechnical models. Geotechnical failure is understood here in a broad sense as the failure of a structure to function properly due to a geotechnical reason. Some of the g... Etc

A New Pressurized Vane Shear Apparatus by S Messerklinger( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The new vane shear test apparatus enables shear strength investigations of fine-grained soils at different pressures and shear velocities, such as those acting in a working chamber of an Earth pressure balance tunnel boring machine. The main conceptual innovation is the application of a confining pressure onto the test specimen while the vane shear test is performed. This allows for the exploration of pressure dependency on the shear strength of fine-grained soils, e.g., conditioned with foams and polymers. The technical innovation is that the torque sensor is located inside the pressure chamber. This permits for accurate torque measurement by excluding friction at contact areas and sealed insertions. The new vane shear test apparatus is a fast and reliable device to measure the shear strength of any fine-grained soils with soft consistency. In this paper pressure and rate-dependent shear strength data of kaolinite and illite clays and of "conditioned soils" made of kaolinite and illite clays mixed with foam and polymer additives are presented and the applicability of the apparatus is validated
