Geotechnical Engineering has become a more involved applied science and, as a result, a geotechnical engineer is expected to have a working knowledge in engineering aspects relating to geology, geomorphology, and even paleontology. Physical Behaviour in Geotechnics covers a wide range of useful topics which affect the response of a soil or a rock mass to an applied stress field. As well as the classical themes in geotechnics, the book includes highly stimulating topics such as: - practical aspects of engineering geology including rock formation & mineralogy, and elements of earthquake engineering - detailed analysis of finite difference modelling of seepage problems (including inclined flow boundaries) as well as (3-D) diffusion problems - critical state modelling of soil behaviour - the expansion of cylindrical cavities theory applied to the pressuremeter test - a unique and highly informative chapter on centrifuge modelling in geotechnics. Presented in a logical way, and analysed in a clear manner using in excess of 320 high quality illustrations and more than 50 worked examples, the book is an essential text for students as well as junior and more experienced engineers.
