Fast development of numerical methods in mechanics has been attracting an increasing number of students, researchers and design specialists from all branches of engineering. This book has been written to provide an understanding of the nature and the theoretical basis of the most widely used numerical methods - the finite element method (FEM) and the boundary element method (BEM), and, at the same time it outlines the most promising directions of their future development. The book concentrates on the most efficient and reliable methods which have become widely adopted, and on the methods which are currently under fast development. It contains numerous examples which either illustrate various computational algorithms and compare their accuracy and efficiency, or elucidate the mechanical process under investigation.

Failure in Geomaterials offers a unified view of material failure as an instability of deformation modes framed within the theory of bifurcation. Using mathematical rigor, logic, physical reasoning and basic principles of mechanics, the authors develop the fundamentals of failure in geomaterials based on the second-order work criterion. Various forms of rupture modes and material instabilities in granular materials are explored both analytically and numerically with lab experimental observations on sand as a backdrop. The authors provide a clear picture of inelastic deformations and failure of geomaterials under various loading conditions. A unique feature of the book is the systematic application of the developed theory to the failure analysis of some selected engineering problems such as soil nailing, landslides, energy resource extraction, and internal erosion in soils. Provides the fundamentals of the mechanics of geomaterials for a detailed background on the subject Integrates a rigorous mathematical description of failure with mechanisms based on microstructure Helps users apply mathematical models of solid mechanics to engineering practice Contains a systematic development of the fundamentals of failure in heterogeneous multiphasic materials
