The framework makes use of an arbitrary number of viscoelastic networks and an elastic equilibrium network to create a nonlinear model to predict and track changes in the internal structural networks of a polymer as it responds to repeated cyclic snap-fit loads.
The topics include stresses and strains: elastic equilibrium, stresses and displacements in a soil mass, pore water pressure due to undrained loading, consolidation, the shear strength of soils, and the elastic settlement of shallow foundations.
