**Physical Soil Mechanics Advances in Geophysical and Environmental Mechanics and Mathematics by Gerd Gudehus**

Soil is matter in its own right. Its nature can be captured by means of monotonous, cyclic and strange attractors. Thus material properties are defined by the asymptotic response of sand- and clay-like samples to imposed deformations and stresses. This serves to validate and calibrate elastoplastic and hypoplastic relations with comparative plots.

Extensions capture thermal and seismic activations, limitations occur due to localizations and skeleton decay.Attractors in the large characterize boundary value problems from model tests via geotechnical operations up to tectonic evolutions. Validations of hypoplastic calculations are shown with many examples, possible further applications are indicated in detail. This approach is energetically justified and limited by critical points where the otherwise legitimate continuity gets lost by localization and decay. You will be fascinated by the fourth element although or just as it is so manifold.

There is no thermodynamic equilibrium without conservative interactions (Feynman et al. 1966). So how can attractors be of any use for soils? It is rst shown in Chap. 1 that particulate models (e.g. grain by grain) and continuum solid models cannot suce for soils, but can provide useful arguments.

Therefore ve following chapters begin with ‘preludes on solids’, and particulate dynamics willsometimes be considered qualitatively. The introduction deals then with continuum soil models in the light of objectivity.
