Modelling and Testing: Implementation of Numerical Models and Their Application in Practice

  • C. S. Desai
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 311)


The complexity of many geomechanical systems necessitates the use of modern numerical methods such as the finite element, boundary element and finite difference procedures. With the almost unlimited power of the current and future computers, these methods can provide extremely powerful tools for analysis and design of engineering systems with complex factors that was not possible or very difficult with the use of the conventional methods, often based on closed-form analytical solutions.
