By: Lancellotta, Renato [autor]
Publisher: New York : Taylor & Francis Group, ©2009Edition: 2nd edDescription: xx, 499 páginas : ilustraciones ; 24 cmContent type: texto Media type: no mediado Carrier type: volumenISBN: 978415420044Subject(s): Geologia aplicada | Mecánica de rocas | Mecanica de suelosDDC classification: 624.151
Contents:
Origin, description and classification of soils. -- Continuum mechanics. -- Basic constitutive models. -- The porous medium. -- Stress-strain behaviour of soils. -- Flow in porous media. -- In situ investigations. -- The collapse of soil structures. -- Serviceability limit state.
Summary: Established as a standard textbook for students, this new edition of geotechnical engineering provides a soild grounding in the mechanics of soils and soil-structure interaction. Renato Lancellotta gives a clear presentation of the fundamental principles of soil mechanics and demonstrates how these principles are applied in practice to engineering problems and geotechnical design. This is supported by numerous examples with worked solutions, clear summaries and extensive further reading lists throughout the book.
