Here is the listing of Best reference books on Geotechnical Constitutive Models.
|1. “Disturbed Soil Properties” by A.N. Schofield
Book Review: This book provides a description about the developments made in soil properties that lead to cam clay model and also deals with the fundamentals of soil shearing. The book also explains the basics of geotechnical design thereby helping the engineers to deal with different combinations of effective stress and water content. The book also contains equations that explain the soil behavior and the effort needed to deal with the author.
|2. “Critical State Soil Mechanics via Finite Elements” by A.M. Britto and M.J. Gunn|
|3. “Soil Behaviour and Critical State Soil Mechanics” by D.M. Wood
Book Review: This book describes ideally elastic and perfectly plastic soils which are mostly used for geotechnical engineering calculations. The book describes the basic things of elastic plastic models related to soil behavior and demonstrates the usage of such models in numerical analysis. The numerical analysis is mainly mysterious black boxes on which the numerical models are based.
|4. “A Guide to Soil Mechanics” by M.D. Bolton
Book Review: The book covers all the topics related to soil mechanics and foundation engineering and is very useful for degrees in civil engineering. The book is also very suitable for practicing engineers making them aware of the concepts of plasticity, dilatancy and critical states. The book contains chapter that has case studies which demonstrate the engineer’s role as a troubleshooter and also presents concepts that deal with soil problems and also provide many definitions. The chapters also explain modes of soil behavior, soil elements behavior, soil test interpretation and many more.
