Abstract

We describe a class of viscoplastic constitutive models capable of simulating the monotonic and cyclic rate-dependent soil behavior. These models are developed by enriching their inviscid counterparts with a viscous character to model the irreversible deformation that develops with time. The viscoplastic strain rate is of the Duvaut-Lions type whose magnitude increases with the distance of the stress point from its projection onto the inviscid solution. With appropriate choice of an inviscid elasto-plastic soil model, one can generate quasipreconsolidation effects during creep and account for the influence of frequency on the shape and width of hysteresis loops formed during cyclic loading.

Modeling the Monotonic and Cyclic Viscoplastic Soil Behavior

St. Louis, Missouri

We describe a class of viscoplastic constitutive models capable of simulating the monotonic and cyclic rate-dependent soil behavior. These models are developed by enriching their inviscid counterparts with a viscous character to model the irreversible deformation that develops with time. The viscoplastic strain rate is of the Duvaut-Lions type whose magnitude increases with the distance of the stress point from its projection onto the inviscid solution. With appropriate choice of an inviscid elasto-plastic soil model, one can generate quasipreconsolidation effects during creep and account for the influence of frequency on the shape and width of hysteresis loops formed during cyclic loading.
