Geomaterials convey complicated yet wealthy mechanical behaviour with a number of failure modes starting from diffuse to localized deformation looking on pressure, density, microstructure, and loading stipulations. those failure modes are as a result an instability of fabric and/or geometric nature that may be studied in the framework of bifurcation conception. Degradation is one other similar phenomenon coming up from cyclic loading, growing older, weathering, chemical assault, and capillary results, between others. The method of reading many of the forms of instabilities is essential within the enough modelling and secure layout of various difficulties in geomechanics.

The current quantity features a sampling of enlarged models of papers awarded on the International Workshop on Bifurcation and Degradations in Geomaterials (IWBDG 2008) held in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada, may possibly 28-31, 2008. those papers seize the cutting-edge within the really expert box of geomechanics and modern methods to fixing the vital factor of failure. a few engineering functions are offered within the components of strength source extraction and soil-machine interaction.

As such, material instability is a basic prerequisite for capturing the rich variety of unstable deformation modes commonly observed in boundary value problems. Among various manifestations of material instability, we are particularly interested in diffuse failure in the absence of any strain localization. As a prominent example, Fig. 1 shows the instability of homogeneous deformations resulting into the formation of unstable force chains to a sudden loss in inter-particle contacts to collapse in an analogue granular assembly of pentagonal photo-elastic disks subject to biaxial R.
