About this book

This text examines the methods for investigating poorly lithified soils under field and laboratory conditions. It also provides laws governing the deformation of such soils under loading in terms of non-linear relationships. Examples are provided in order to illustrate the method of determining viscoplastic flow and strength of soils as a function of time.


Keynote lectures and VELACS report; centrifuge facilities; equipment and instrumentation for centrifuge tests; earthquake effects; dynamic problems; contaminant transport and flow problems; deep foundations; shallow foundations; embankments and slopes; deep excavations and tunnels; pipes and anchors.
