This article discusses special challenges posed for solid mechanics by problems in geotechnology and geophysics and recent advances made by applications of solid mechanics to these areas. In addition, the article discusses selected promising areas of current research, focussing on results and needs for further research in the following areas: multi-axial constitutive relations; the coupling of mechanical response with fluid flow and chemistry; fracture growth, interaction and network development; and earthquake dynamics.
