Here is the listing of Best reference books on Advanced Geotechnical Analysis.
|1. “Critical State Soil Mechanics via Finite Elements” by A.M. Britto and M.J. Gunn|
|2. “Soil Behaviour and Critical State Soil Mechanics” by D.M. Wood
Book Review: This book carries out the performance analysis based on realistic models. The book also describes the basic things of simple plastic elastic models of soil behavior and also illustrates the usage of such models in numerical analysis. Numerical analyses are black boxes which require an understanding of numerical models on which they are based. Understanding the numerical models indicate the ways in which sophisticated models perform. They also take into consideration geotechnical engineering calculations.
|3. “A Guide to Soil Mechanics” by M.D. Bolton
Book Review: The book covers all the topics related to soil mechanics and foundation engineering. This is a very good textbook for civil engineers as well as practicing engineers who are not aware of the concepts of plasticity, dilatancy and critical states. The book contains case histories and many concepts that clarify diverse soil problems. The book also contains chapters that demonstrate the behavior of soil elements and is relevant to the soil test interpretation as well as their analysis. The book also contains a chapter dedicated to the design of works in and on soil.
|4. “Advanced Geotechnical Analyses” by P.K. Banerjee and R. Butterfield
Book Review: The chapters contained in the book demonstrate a perfect blend of the engineering judgment and the various principles of engineering mechanics. The book also demonstrates various concepts that resolve complex geotechnical engineering problems. The concepts presented in the book inspire the geotechnical engineering practice to make their usage more and more in future. The book contains various chapters that demonstrate the behavior of soil elements which is related to the interpretation of soil tests.
