About the Authors
  • Plasticity and Geomechanics is a concise introduction to the general subject of plasticity with a particular emphasis on applications in geomechanics. Derived from the authors' lecture notes, this book is written with students firmly in mind. Excessive use of mathematical methods is avoided and, where possible, physical interpretations are given for important concepts. The authors present a clear introduction to the complex ideas and concepts of plasticity and demonstrate how this developing subject is of critical importance to geomechanics and geotechnical engineering.

    • Provides a particularly clear description of the basic concepts of plasticity theory at a level suitable for graduate students
    • Fills the gap between introductory texts on classical plasticity theory developed primarily for metals and the more advanced works on mechanics of geomaterials
    • Includes examples of practical applications and uses numerous clear line drawings to introduce and interpret difficult ideas and concepts

    "This book will be very beneficial to students who wish to go beyond Mohr-Coulomb criteria and delve into plasticity to understand the behavior of geomaterials at more fundamental levels.... Highly recommended." Choice
