Description

Statics of Granular Media focuses on the theory of limiting equilibrium of a granular medium. The book first discusses the limiting of equilibrium of a granular medium, including limiting conditions, limiting equilibrium of foundations, and limiting plane equilibrium of a granular medium. The text also focuses on the stability of foundations and slopes. Topics include normal restraining pressure on foundations; normal failure pressure on foundations; stability of slopes; and shape of curvilinear curves. The selection also highlights pressure of a fill on retaining walls, including active and passive pressure of a fill on retaining walls, twin retaining walls, and limiting plane equilibrium of a lamellar medium. The text also underscores limiting equilibrium of a cohesive medium. Topics include stability of foundations; shape of curvilinear slopes; pressure of a fill on retaining walls; and limiting plane equilibrium of a cohesive medium. Limiting the equilibrium of wedges is also discussed. The book is a valuable source of data for readers interested in the theory of limiting equilibrium of a granular medium.
