Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering
Sixth European Conference on Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering (Graz, Austria, 6-8 September 2006)
An overview of recent developments in constitutive modelling, numerical implementation issues, and coupled and dynamic analysis. There is a special section dedicated to the numerical modelling of ground improvement techniques, with applications of numerical methods for solving practical boundary value problems, such as deep excavations, tunnels, shallow and deep foundations, embankments and slopes. These proceedings not only contain the latest scientific research, but also give valuable insight into the applications of numerical methods in solving practical engineering problems, thus narrowing the gap between advanced academic research and practical application.
