Abstract

This book offers several systematic methods based on up-to-date mathematics to untangle the mechanism of bifurcation of structures and materials, such as soil, sand, kaolin, and concrete. Throughout this book, we place more emphasis on engineering pragmatism than on mathematical rigor. We offer, in this first chapter, an overview of the book using a series of illustrative examples and photographs.
