Numerical software of Plasticity to Geomechanics is a space of analysis that has grown swiftly on account that its origins within the overdue Nineteen Sixties. This progress ended in new methodologies and research techniques which are these days more often than not hired in Geotechnical Engineering perform. throughout the contribution of recognized students this publication intends to supply an up-to-date evaluation of a few suitable advancements and functions during this box. the subjects coated within the a number of chapters of the amount could be summarised as follows: constitutive versions for geomaterials, "damage|” soil mechanics, non-linear consolidation, swelling soils, impact of the statistical variability of soil homes at the balance of slopes and foundations, numerical research of floor development recommendations, tunneling problems.

Variation of the compressive strength with the orientation of the reinforcements from inhomogeneous (dots) and non-isotropic (solid lines) analyses. 42 A. Cividini d) Non-isotropic Analysis of the Axisymmetric Triaxial Tests and Improvement of the Constitutive Mode/ The non-isotropic yield criterion was applied to the analysis of the triaxial tests carried out on reinforced sand samples, assmning an elastic perfectly plastic behaviour for the composite material. The comparison between experimental and nmnerical results shows that the assmnption of perfectly plastic behaviour in the non-isotropic analyses does not provide an adequate approximation of the observed stress-strain curves.

As previously observed, the shear resistance of the reinforced samples almost coincides with that of the unreinforced specimens when /)approaches 45°. This implies that reinforced earth structures may give substantially different responses to external load increments, depending on the angle existing between the reinforcements and the compressive principal stress. The experimental results indicate also that the overall behaviour of the composite material depends on a variety of mechanical and geometrical parameters, characterising both the basic materials and their assemblage.
