Abstract

A mathematical model is formulated to present constitutive relation of sandy soil under cyclic loading. The fundamental concepts of kinematic and isotropic work-hardening plasticity theory are utilized here to obtain the relationship between rate of strain and rate of stress, in which the yield function, hardening function and plastic potential are proposed from experimental evidence and theoretical considerations. The predicted inelastic behaviour is compared with available experimental results of conventional cyclic triaxial tests, particularly of liquefaction phenomena.

Dynamic Behaviour of Sandy Soil and Liquefaction

St. Louis, Missouri

A mathematical model is formulated to present constitutive relation of sandy soil under cyclic loading. The fundamental concepts of kinematic and isotropic work-hardening plasticity theory are utilized here to obtain the relationship between rate of strain and rate of stress, in which the yield function, hardening function and plastic potential are proposed from experimental evidence and theoretical considerations. The predicted inelastic behaviour is compared with available experimental results of conventional cyclic triaxial tests, particularly of liquefaction phenomena.
