Synopsis

Mechanics of Reinforced Soil by Andrzej (Polish Academy of Sciences, Gdansk, Poland) Sawicki

This text presents the mechanical aspects of reinforced soil (RS) behaviour. Beginning with simple reinforced soil models, it discusses various aspects of this material, such as properties of its constituents, and stresses and strains in reinforced soil, up to the more complex analysis of RS structures. Its scope and level ensures it will be a valuable resource for students, academics and geotechnical engineering professionals alike.

Reviews

Overall, an excellent book and a welcome addition to the growing literature on reinforced soil. --Appl Mech Rev, Vol 54, no.5, May 2001.
