Foundation Vibration Analysis by John P. Wolf
Book DescriptionStructural analysis is usually carried out by a strength-of-materials approach that allows complex 3-D structures to be modelled adequately for design needs in a single dimension. However, this approach is not extensively used in geotechnical engineering, partly because 3-D media (soil, rock) are present, but more importantly because until recently the methods necessary to carry out this form of analysis did not exist. In the last ten years efforts at modelling practical problems in foundation analysis using a strength-of-materials approach have developed the concept of the conical bar or beam as a tool. Such cone models can be used to model a foundation in a dynamic soil-structure interaction analysis with a variation of the properties with depth. This book develops this new approach from scratch in a readable and accessible manner. A systematic evaluation for a wide range of actual sites demonstrates sufficient engineering accuracy. A short computer program written in MATLAB and a user-friendly executable program are provided, while practical examples ensure a clear understanding of the topic.

Scaled Boundary Finite Element Method, Hardback (January 2003)
The finite-element method and the boundary-element method are the most widely used computational procedures in solid mechanics and other fields of engineering and physics. Yet, given their distinct features, each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Finite Element Modelling of Unbounded Medium, Hardback (June 1996)» View all books by John P. Wolf
Dynamic unbounded medium-structure interactions occur in many fields of engineering and physical science, such as wave propagation in soil-structure and fluid-structure interactions, acoustics and electromagnetism and as diffusion in heat conduction and consolidation.
