The first part of the volume contains theoretical considerations of the physical properties of soils and rocks. Articles on the mechanical and kinematical behavior of rocks as well as mathematical models are the base for the understanding of the physical properties of natural systems. In the second part articles deal with experiments and applications regarding creep deformation of clay, underground cavities, tunnels and deformation of sand and lamistrine sediments.
Change of scale methods applied in mechanics of saturated soils.- The use of the homogenization method to describe the viscoelastic behaviour of a porous saturated medium.- A statical micromechanical description of yielding in cohesionless soil.- A mathematical model for the liquefaction of soils.- The kinematics of self-similar plane penetration problems in Mohr-Coulomb granular materials.- Slip surfaces in soil mechanics.- Undrained creep deformation of a strip load on clay.- A closed-form solution for the problem of a viscoplastic hollow sphere application to underground cavities in rock salt.- Characteristic state and infrared vibrothermography of sand.- Non linear behaviour of anisotropic rocks.- Rock-support interaction in lined tunnels.- Deformation of laminated lacustrine sediments of the dead sea.- On the construction of a constitutive equation of soil by making use of the DLS model.
