In geomechanics, existing design methods are very much dependent upon sophisticated on-site techniques to assess ground conditions. Obtaining this practical information is expensive and time consuming. More and more, engineers are looking to extending and increasing the accuracy of their design by computer simulation. Hence sophisticated numerical analysis and modelling is being pushed to the limits to develop better design methods. This book describes numerical analysis, computer simulation and modelling that can be used to answer some highly complex questions associated with geomechanics. The contributors, who are all international experts in the field, also give insights into the future directions of these methods Numerical Analysis and Modelling in Geomechanics will appeal to professional engineers involved in designing and building both onshore and offshore structures, where geomechanical considerations may well be outside the usual codes of practice, and therefore specialist advice is required. Postgraduate researchers, degree students carrying out project work in this area will also find the book an invaluable resource.
