Abstract: During the past decade, increasing interest has been shown in the development of a satisfactory formulation of a stress-strain relationship for engineering soils that incorporates a concise statement of nonlinearity, inelasticity, and stress dependency. Conventional approaches have tended to assume a constant modulus of elasticity and Poisson.s ratio and although it was acknowledged that it was unwise to place too much reliance on linear elastic theory, few others tractable solutions have been available.
