Mechanics Problems and Material Properties

  • Louis J. Thompson
Part of the Marine Science book series (MR, volume 2)


Rational design methods can be developed for submarine engineering problems, only if nonconservative mechanics problems can be solved. This requires the development of material constitutive equations for submarine soils that can be combined with the classical field equations to yield a unique solution for a given set of boundary and initial conditions.
