Constitutive Theory of Granular Soil and Applications

As an important material of civil engineering, the mechanical properties of granular soil will greatly affect the safety of civil engineering structures. Therefore, it is necessary to have a comprehensive understanding of the mechanical properties of granular soil. Based on the author's research work in the past five years, the book is mainly divided into three parts: foundation, expansion and application.

Practice of Constitutive Modelling for Saturated Soils

This book describes the development of a constitutive modeling platform for soil testing, which is one of the key components in geomechanics and geotechnics.

Practice of Optimisation Theory in Geotechnical Engineering

This book presents the development of an optimization platform for geotechnical engineering, which is one of the key components in smart geotechnics.

Practice of Bayesian Probability Theory in Geotechnical Engineering

This book introduces systematically the application of Bayesian probabilistic approach in soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering.
