Advances in Bifurcation and Degradation in Geomaterials: by R. Chambon (auth.), Stéphane Bonelli, Cristian Dascalu,

By R. Chambon (auth.), Stéphane Bonelli, Cristian Dascalu, François Nicot (eds.)

This e-book offers contributions to the ninth foreign Workshop on Bifurcation and Degradation in Geomaterials held in Porquerolles, France, may perhaps 23-26, 2011. This sequence of meetings, begun within the early Eighties, is devoted to the study on degradation and instability phenomena in geomaterials.

The quantity gathers a chain of manuscripts through superb foreign students reflecting fresh tendencies in theoretical and experimental study in geomechanics. It comprises contributions on issues like instability research, localized and diffuse failure description, multi-scale modeling and purposes to geo-environmental issues.

This booklet may be beneficial for someone attracted to the study on degradation and instabilities in geomechanics and geotechnical engineering, attractive to graduate scholars, researchers and engineers alike.

The shear strength is found to increase linearly with this parameter whereas the solid fraction both at the initial isotropic state and in the critical state is nonmonotonous. We show that for these elongated particles a harmonic decomposition of the stress tensor provides a fairly good approximation of the internal state. Our data suggest that the increase of shear strength with reflects both enhanced friction mobilization and anisotropic particle orientation as the elongation of the particles increases.
