ELASTIC SOLUTIONS FOR SOIL AND ROCK MECHANICS
by H.G. Poulos and E.H. Davis, 1974
Professor Harry Poulos, Emeritus Professor from the University of Sydney and a Senior Principal Consultant with Coffey & Partners, has graciously (and generously) agreed to allow USUCGER to post a PDF version of the seminal book Elastic Solutions for Soil and Rock Mechanics (co-authored with the late E.H. Davis). Professor Paul Mayne and Carol Maddox of the Georgia Tech Geosystems Group are also to be thanked for their efforts in producing these PDF documents.
