The book contains chapters covering significant developments in the field of soil mechanics and their application to ground engineering. The various authors discuss methods of numerical analysis for the determination of displacements around earth structures and excavations, and also the interaction of soil with foundations. The following topics are covered by the chapters: (1) finite element methods in soil mechanics, Naylor,DJ; (2) stress-strain laws for soil, Naylor,DJ; (3) application of the finite element method to prediction of ground movements, Burland,JB; (4) developments in two- and three-dimensional consolidation theory, murray,rt; (5) foundation interaction analysis, hooper,ja; (6) diaphragm walls, Hanna,TH; (7) ground anchors, Hanna,TH; (8) the design of piled foundations, Cooke,RW; (9) analysis of axially and laterally loaded pile groups, Bannerjee,PK; (10) the long-term stability of cuttings and natural clay slopes, Simons,NE and Menzies,BK; and (11) stability of embankments on soft ground, Menzies,BK and Simons,NE. /TRRL/
