ABOUT THE BOOK

               Soil Behaviour and Critical State Soil Mechanics written by David Muir Wood, is published by Cambridge University Press.

                 Soils can rarely be described as ideally elastic or perfectly plastic and yet simple elastic and plastic models form the basis for the most traditional geotechnical engineering calculations. With the advent of cheap powerful computers the possibility of performing analyses based on more realistic models has become widely available. One of the aims of this book is to describe the basic ingredients of a family of simple elastic-plastic models of soil behaviour and to demonstrate how such models can be used in numerical analyses. Such numerical analyses are often regarded as mysterious black boxes but a proper appreciation of their worth requires an understanding of the numerical models on which they are based. Though the models on which this book concentrates are simple, understanding of these will indicate the ways in which more sophisticated models will perform.

                This book does not attempt to be a textbook on soil mechanics as a traditional taught but in another way it does provide a new approach to the teaching of soil mechanics.
