The exceeding well-written treatise can serve not only as a valuable reference work on the use of limit analysis in soil mechanics, but also as an excellent text on limit analysis in general.
-W. Prager, Applied Mechanics
Devoted to the theory and applications of limit analysis as applied to soil mechanics, this text also contains information on soil plasticity and rock-like material such as concrete. The first part of the book describes the techniques of limit analysis in detail and are illustrated by many examples. The second part deals with the applications of limit analysis to 'classical soil mechanics problems' and the third part presents advances on bearing capacity problems of concrete blocks or rock. The final part discusses the modern development of the theory of soil plasticity.
An unabridged J. Ross Publishing republication of the edition published by Elsevier Scientific Publishing Co., Amsterdam, 1975, 638pp.
-Presents two elastic-plastic soil models and one elastic-plastic-fracture model for concrete
-Includes numerical results obtained by the finite element method along with limit analysis solutions
-Presents the principles of limit analysis and the general techniques that can be used in deriving statically admissible stress fields and kinematically admissible velocity fields
