About this book

This book presents the basic principles of soil dynamics, and a variety of solutions of practical interest for geotechnical engineering, geophysics and earthquake engineering. Emphasis is on analytical solutions, often including the full derivation of the solution, and giving the main parts of computer programs that can be used to calculate numerical data.

Reference is also made to a website from which complete computer programs can be downloaded.

Soil behaviour is usually assumed to be linear elastic, but in many cases the effect of viscous damping or hysteretic damping, due to plastic deformations, is also considered.

Media reviews
Verruijt (Delft Univ. of Technology, Netherlands) begins this 15-chapter work by discussing the basic properties of dynamic systems including various forms of damping, defined using an elementary system of mass linear spring and damper. [...] The author [...] focuses on the basics of dynamic problems in elastic continua for different types of waves, and provides solutions for more difficult mixed boundary values. [...[ Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and faculty.
