Abstract

Mathematical models are constructed to describe the behavior of engineering systems in quantitative terms. During conceptualization stage of modelling several valid assumptions have to be made so as to make the model predict the behavior of the system as accurately as possible. Refinement of mathematical models need feed back from practice. Many practical cases are of interest in updating and enhancing quantitative judgment of geo-technical systems behavior. This paper envisages to present a few interesting cases where the situation forced true synthesis of theory and practice for innovation and advancement of practical geo-technical engineering.

Use of Case Histories to Enhance Practical Geotechnical Engineering

Arlington, Virginia

Mathematical models are constructed to describe the behavior of engineering systems in quantitative terms.

Refinement of mathematical models need feed back from practice. Many practical cases are of interest in updating and enhancing quantitative judgment of geo-technical systems behavior. This paper envisages to present a few interesting cases where the situation forced true synthesis of theory and practice for innovation and advancement of practical geo-technical engineering.
