Soil Behaviour and Critical State Soil Mechanics by David Muir Wood
Book DescriptionSoils can rarely be described as ideally elastic or perfectly plastic and yet simple elastic and plastic models form the basis for the most traditional geotechnical engineering calculations. With the advent of cheap powerful computers the possibility of performing analyses based on more realistic models has become widely available. One of the aims of this book is to describe the basic ingredients of a family of simple elastic-plastic models of soil behaviour and to demonstrate how such models can be used in numerical analyses. Such numerical analyses are often regarded as mysterious black boxes but a proper appreciation of their worth requires an understanding of the numerical models on which they are based. Though the models on which this book concentrates are simple, understanding of these will indicate the ways in which more sophisticated models will perform.

Civil Engineering: A Very Short Introduction, Paperback (September 2012)
Civil engineering produces the structures of all human settlements worldwide. In this Very Short Introduction, David Muir Wood demonstrates the nature and importance of civil engineering; not only in the history of civilization and urbanization, but its range of facets today, and its challenges for the future.
Soil Mechanics, Hardback (September 2009)
This book teaches the principles of soil mechanics to undergraduates, along with other properties of engineering materials.
Geotechnical Modelling, Paperback (July 2004)» View all books by David Muir Wood
Presents some of the models that form a part of the typical undergraduate geotechnical curriculum and describes some of the aspects of soil behaviour which contribute to the challenge of geotechnical modelling. This book is suitable for students of geotechnical and structural and civil engineering.
