Many stress analyses for geomechanical materials have been successfully carried out employing numerical techniques. Since the initial growth in electronic computer science in the sixties, the finite element method has been the most common technique to analyse stress distributions and deformation patterns in tunnel excavations, embankments, dams, building foundations and other geomechanical problems.
