Abstract

In this paper a new approach to solving the basic equations of elastic cross-anisotropic stress and strain relationships is presented. The uniqueness of the equations is demonstrated and the conditions for their use are easily controlled in the true triaxial test equipment available in the laboratory. By this approximate solution the four anisotropic parameters of cross-anisotropic materials can be obtained. In addition, so-called fuzzy logic weighting factors are introduced to assess the differences among the observed principal deformations of samples tested. A computer program ANISOLV has been written to calculate the formulated parameters. Some typical examples are given to demonstrate the reliability and validity of the method and the program.

A New Method for Determining the Anisotropic Parameters of Materials Under True Triaxial Cyclic Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

In this paper a new approach to solving the basic equations of elastic cross-anisotropic stress and strain relationships is presented. The uniqueness of the equations is demonstrated and the conditions for their use are easily controlled in the true triaxial test equipment available in the laboratory. By this approximate solution the four anisotropic parameters of cross-anisotropic materials can be obtained. In addition, so-called fuzzy logic weighting factors are introduced to assess the differences among the observed principal deformations of samples tested. A computer program ANISOLV has been written to calculate the formulated parameters. Some typical examples are given to demonstrate the reliability and validity of the method and the program.
