This book presents a systematic approach to numerical solution for a wide range of spatial contact problems of geotechnics. On the basis of the boundary element method new techniques and effective computing algorithms are considered. Special attention is given to the formulation and analysis of the spatial contact models for elastic bases. Besides the classical schemes of contact deformation, new contact models are discussed for spatially nonhomogeneous and nonlinearly elastic media properly describing soil properties.In modern geotechnical engineering, field and laboratory experiments have become complicated, durable and expensive, and the ... For the design of engineering constructions, the computational experiment enables real situations to be predicted and practical economical effect to be achieved. ... is undoubtedly an efficient numerical method for solving many spatial problems in geotechnical engineering.
