Summary

In the area of geomechanics, sophisticated sampling and analytical techniques can be used to provide accurate ground and soil information, but only within the limits of the initial assumptions and the modelling used. The accuracy of the model can be increased by the use of computer based numerical modelling and analysis, especially the finite element method. In this volume, experts from all over the world describe how different methods of analysis and modelling are used to answer some of the questions associated with geomechanics, and give an insight into the future directions of those methods.
