Chapter

Abstract

The purpose of this book is to introduce the readers to the basic ideas of continuous mechanics (Part I) with a special emphasis on constitutive relationships (Parts II and III). The presentation focuses on constitutive modelling of geomaterials with applications in geotechnical engineering. The main objective here is to bridge the gap between the geomechanics and numerical modelling courses.
