About the Authors
  • This book concisely examines the use of elasticity in solving geotechnical engineering problems. In a highly illustrated and user-friendly format, it provides a thorough grounding in the linear theory of elasticity and an understanding of the applications. The first two chapters present a basic framework of the theory of elasticity and describe test procedures for the determination of elastic parameters for soils. Chapters 3 and 4 present the fundamental solutions of Boussinesque, Kelvin, and Mindlin, and use these to formulate solutions to problems of practical interest in geotechnical engineering. The book concludes with a sequence of appendices designed to provide the interested student with details of elasticity theory that are peripheral to the main text. Each chapter concludes with a set of questions for the student to answer. The book is appropriate for upper level students in civil engineering and engineering geology.

    • Accessible to students with a broad range of backgrounds and abilities
    • Highly illustrated
    • Includes questions for the student to answer

    "...this reviewer liked Elasticity and Geomechanics. The writing style is informal and reads easily....If an instructor is looking for a book on basic elasticity with a geomaterial focus, this reviewer would encourage that instructor to look at this work; he or she might be pleasantly surprised." E.B. Pitman, Applied Mechanics Reviews

    "...a valuable guide....Overall, a pleasantly readable book. Highly recommended...." Choice
