Geomechanics: Testing, Modeling, and Simulation gathers the most state-of-the-art geomechanics research conducted by investigators from the United States and Japan. This book contains papers presenting new data, methods, and facilities on a variety of topics in the areas of testing, modeling, and numerical simulations in geomechanics. A wide range of research is incorporated into the text, which is divided into eight sections: time effects; stress-strain behavior and cyclic loading residual strains; anisotropy and fabric bonding; shear banding and postpeak stress-strain behavior; liquefaction; effects of particle size, gradation, and particle breakage; new testing equipment and systems; and innovative computational methods. Included is an appendix of discussion notes, which were recorded upon the papers' presentation. Those with an interest in the current trends and research topics in geomechanics in the United States and Japan will find this book extremely beneficial.
