Abstract: Proceedings of Geo-Frontiers 2005, held in Austin, Texas, January 24-26, 2005. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE. This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 8 papers on various aspects of constitutive modeling of geomaterials. During the last 40 years, a large number of constitutive models, possessing varying degrees of sophistication, have been developed to simulate the behavior of geomaterials. These papers evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of various models to assist engineers using the models to evaluate deformations in geotechnical structures.
