Soil Buckling and the Leaning Instability of Tall Structures

Buckling is usually associated with slender structures of stiff materials, such as steel and aluminium. This paper aim to show that it occurs, also, in foundation engineering and soil mechanics. Foundations and soil samples of relatively robust dimensions can be vulnerable to buckling when deformations are large, i.e. when the stiffness of the soil is low. E.C. Hambly
