Description
Proceedings of the First Japan-U.S. Workshop on Testing, Modeling, and Simulation, held in Boston, Massachusetts, June 27-29, 2003. Sponsored by Soil Properties and Modeling Committee of the Geo-Institute of ASCE; Japanese Geotechnical Society; JSSMFE; Japan Society for Promotion of Science; National Science Foundation; in cooperation with International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.

This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 41 papers gathering the most state-of-the-art geomechanics research conducted by investigators from the United States and Japan. The papers in this volume present new data, methods, and facilities on a variety of topics in the areas of testing, modeling, and numerical simulations in geomechanics.  An appendix of discussion notes, which were recorded upon the papers' presentation, is included.

Topics include:

  • time effects;
  • stress-strain behavior and cyclic loading residual strains;
  • anisotropy and fabric bonding;
  • shear banding and postpeak stress-strain behavior;
  • liquefaction;
  • effects of particle size, gradation, and particle breakage;
  • new testing equipment and systems; and
  • innovative computational methods.

Those with an interest in the current trends and research topics in geomechanics in the United States and Japan will find this book extremely beneficial.
