Description - Soil-Structure Interaction by J. W. Bull
The major problems in predicting soil-structure interaction are based on the fact that soil is neither homogeneous nor elastic and is invariably much weaker than the structure it has to support. This book describes how a number of different methods of analysis and modelling, including the boundary element method, the finite element method and a range of classical methods, are used to answer some of the questions associated with soil-structure interaction. Contributions from 19 international practising engineers and researchers cover the following main topics: caverns; dams; embankments; excavations; subsidence; pavements; piles; pipelines; retaining walls and tunnels.
