Applications of the Nonlinear Boundary Elements Formulation

  • W. S. Venturini
Part of the Lecture Notes in Engineering book series (LNENG, volume 4)


In this chapter some geomechanical nonlinear problems are analysed using the boundary element technique presented in the previous chapters. For all examples the viscoplastic algorithm shown in chapter 9 is employed, even when only plastic solutions are analysed.
