Modeling in Geotechnical Engineering is a one stop reference for a range of computational models, the theory explaining how they work, and case studies describing how to apply them. Drawing on the expertise of contributors from a range of disciplines including geomechanics, optimization, and computational engineering, this book provides an interdisciplinary guide to this subject which is suitable for readers from a range of backgrounds.

Before tackling the computational approaches, a theoretical understanding of the physical systems is provided that helps readers to fully grasp the significance of the numerical methods. The various models are presented in detail, and advice is provided on how to select the correct model for your application.

Key Features

  • Provides detailed descriptions of different computational modelling methods for geotechnical applications, including the finite element method, the finite difference method, and the boundary element method
  • Gives readers the latest advice on the use of big data analytics and artificial intelligence in geotechnical engineering
  • Includes case studies to help readers apply the methods described in their own work


Postgraduate students and researchers in the field of geotechnical engineering. Consulting engineers in the field of geotechnical engineering
