Abstract:

A large number of schemes using the finite element FE and finite difference FD methods have been proposed. Numerical and physical properties of these schemes, vital for their use as general procedures and significant from the viewpoint of the user, are often not examined adequately. One of the aims of this study was to examine numerical properties of a selected number of schemes for problems relevant to geotechnical engineering.
