Analysis of Structures on Elastic Foundations is a practical guide for structural and geotechnical engineers as well as graduate students working in foundation engineering. Included are detailed descriptions of practical methods of analysis of various foundations including simple beams on elastic foundations as well as very complex foundations such as mat foundations supported on piles. Methods for fast and easy hand analysis in addition to methods for exact computer analysis are presented. Most of the methods are developed for three soil models: Winkler foundation, elastic half-spaces, and elastic layers. Numerous numerical examples illustrate the applications of these methods.

Author Biography

Edward Tsudik, Ph.D., P.E., received his M.S. Degree in Structural Engineering from the Moscow Structural Engineering Institute (VZISI) and his Ph.D. from the Moscow Engineering Institute (MADI), School of Bridges and Tunnels. Dr. Tsudik has worked as a structural engineer in various positions, mostly in the area of computer structural analysis and led a group of engineers and programmers involved in the development of structural software for practical applications. After immigrating to the United States, he worked as a structural engineer for the M.W. Kellogg Corp. and the Foster Weller Energy Corp. and started an engineering and construction company involved in the earthquake rehabilitation of old masonry buildings. Dr. Tsudik is the author of 40 publications, including two monographs, primarily on structures on elastic foundations and soil-foundation-structure interactions. He has participated in numerous international conferences devoted to the design and analysis of structures and foundations and has conducted seminars at engineering companies and at UCLA.
