About this book

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.


1. The Effect of Increasing the Depth of an Underground Void on the Surface Displacements of an Airfield Runway. 2. Numerical and Experimental Study of Compressed Air Tunnelling. 3. A General Finite Element Method for Wave-Seabed-Interaction. 4. The Stability of Unsaturated Soil Slopes Subjected to Rainfall Infiltration. 5. Computational Modelling of Ground Waves due to Pile Driving. 6. Back Analysis of Geotechnical Problems. 7. Parameter Estimation using Extended Bayesian Method in Tunnelling. 8. Seismic Microzoning using Numerical Modelling: the Umbria-Marche Earthquake of 26 September 1997. 9. Ground Motion Modelling Using the "-D Chebyshev Spectral Element Method. 10. Analysis and Design of Pile Groups. 11. Reservoir Compaction, Subsidence and Well Damage.
