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.

This research work had the aim of developing a procedure for back-calculating accurate and precise parameter values, describing the mechanical behaviour of the materials built in an existing road structure. After reviewing the existing testing techniques, a new device was designed and assembled at the IGT, Institute for Geotechnical Engineering (ETH Zürich) for measuring the three dimensional deflection bowl under a standard axle load (SAL). Particular attention was paid for obtaining precise and accurate significant measurements for inverse analysis. Three field tests on different locations and road structures were carried out: a flexible pavement type built in a concrete pit (indoor facility) at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne), a semirigid type in Hinwil (Switzerland) and a flexible type in Bellinzona (Hinwil). The tests results show that the measured road displacements under a SAL, for relatively low temperatures, are generally reversible and time independent. Laboratory tests (uniaxial compression) were carried out on cores obtained from field samples.The strain measurements of the loaded samples were carried out with strain gages, and validated against devices with different technology (LVDT). The analysis of the test results showed that the materials have different bulk and deviatoric stress-strain behaviour. A new thermodynamical framework for non linear viscoelasticity (hyperviscoelasticity) was developed. Experimentally validated hyperviscoelastic and hyperelastic constitutive laws were adopted respectively for describing the mechanical behaviour of asphalt and cement stabilized mixtures. The inverse analysis of the field tests results was carried out with two different optimization algorithms (Levenberg Marquardt and Mesh Adaptative Direct Search), the FE program ABAQUS, and the developed user defined models. The results demonstrate the accuracy and precision of the parameter values obtained with the proposed inverse analysis procedure, demonstrating a potential for application of the developed technique for non destructing testing of real road structures.

Highways provide the arteries of modern society. The interaction of road, rail and other transport infrastructure with the ground is unusually intimate, and thus needs to be well-understood to provide economic and reliable infrastructure for society. Challenges include not only the design of new infrastructure (often on problematic ground), but increasingly the management and maintenance of aging assets in the face of issues such as climate change. This book is the written record of the first International Conference on Transportation Geotechnics held under the auspices of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, held in Nottingham, UK, in 2008. It comprises about 100 papers from a global selection of researchers and practitioners on: – Slope instability, stabilisation, and asset management; – Construction on soft ground; – Interaction with structures and geogrid reinforced soil; – Effect of climate change and vegetation; – Highways, pavements and subgrade; – Railway geotechnics; – Soil improvement; – Characterisation and recycling of geomaterials. A further part of this collection contains papers on unbound aggregate materials as used in pavement construction and drainage. They formed the ‘Unbound Aggregates in Roads (UNBAR7)’ theme of the conference which followed on from the previous symposia of that title, also held in Nottingham, UK, most recently in 2004. The volume will be of interest to professionals and academics in geotechnical, highway, railway and general civil engineering.

Increasing environmental awareness has emphasised the many engineering situations in which there are potential environmental impacts (both harmful and beneficial). This book provides engineers who are (or are likely to be) involved in such projects with the information and techniques to enable them to select a course of action which is 'best practice' from both the environmental and engineering points of view. The author outlines the fundamental principles of geotechnics and current ground engineering practice and proceeds to a detailed examination of the interaction with the environment. Environmental Geotechnics amalgamates the current body of knowledge on environmental aspects of ground engineering including landfill and contaminated land and as such will appeal to engineers working in the fields of geotechnics, the environment and water, waste management, and geology.

This comprehensive new two-volume work provides the reader with a detailed insight into the use of the finite element method in geotechnical engineering. As specialist knowledge required to perform geotechnical finite element analysis is not normally part of a single engineering degree course, this lucid work will prove invaluable. It brings together essential information presented in a manner understandable to most engineers. Volume 1 presents the theory, assumptions and approximations involved in finite element analysis while Volume 2 concentrates on its practical applications to real geotechnical problems. The theory explored in the first volume is referred to in the case studies of the second volume to provide a holistic impression of finite element analysis as it is applied in geotechncial engineering. Using practical examples, the second volume illustrates the restrictions, pitfalls, advantages and disadvantages of numerical analysis. The authors examine popular constitutive models, numerical techniques and case studies. Together, both volumes aim to provide the reader with sufficient knowledge to judge the credibility of the numerical results that the reader may obtain, or review, in the future. Finite element analysis in geotechnical engineering: theory and application will be essential reading for practising geotechnical and structural engineers and researchers, particularly users of commercial finite element software, both in industry and in academia. Students performing project work at undergraduate and postgraduate level will also find this book invaluable.

This book presents a systematic approach to numerical solution for a wide range of spatial contact problems of geotechnics. On the basis of the boundary element method new techniques and effective computing algorithms are considered. Special attention is given to the formulation and analysis of the spatial contact models for elastic bases. Besides the classical schemes of contact deformation, new contact models are discussed for spatially nonhomogeneous and nonlinearly elastic media properly describing soil properties.
