Abstract

For realistic modelling oi deformation and collapse of soil structures, an accurate constitutive model for the soil materials is necessary. In this paper we shall show i) how such very successful models can be obtained by the use of generalized plasticity theory; ii) the modification of such models for semi-saturated behavior; and finally iii) How incorporation of such models into a two phase computer program allows the solution of complex problems. A possible mode of failure of the San Fernando dam is included. This paper is divided into three parts according to the above.

Constitutive Modelling of Soils and Computation of Earthquake Damage and Liquefaction

St. Louis, Missouri

For realistic modelling oi deformation and collapse of soil structures, an accurate constitutive model for the soil materials is necessary. In this paper we shall show i) how such very successful models can be obtained by the use of generalized plasticity theory; ii) the modification of such models for semi-saturated behavior; and finally iii) How incorporation of such models into a two phase computer program allows the solution of complex problems. A possible mode of failure of the San Fernando dam is included. This paper is divided into three parts according to the above.
