|Keyword(s)||Elastic theory, Foundation engineers and Terzaghis' Theoretical soil mechanics|
Foundation engineers frequently have to use formulae derived rigorously from the elastic theory - a subject which is not normally included in university engineering courses being more properly found in the province of advanced applied mathematics; even such works as Terzaghis' Theoretical soil mechanics do not derive these useful equations, but merely quote the results and discuss their applications and limitations in practice.
