    Forgive my stupidity, but what on earth is "Soil Mechanics" ?!

    "what on earth" indeed - nice pun. I'm afraid I don't know either though! Anyone care to enlighten us please?!

    Soil Mechanics is the measurement of soil properties and the modelling and prediction of soil behaviour. Formation stiffness is the railway relevant part of this, and much development work is being done on finding better ways of detecting formation failure.
