Abstract: Soft rock ground is widely distributed in Japan and slope failure of soft rock occurs frequently. It is necessary to understand the mechanical behavior of soft rock and to develop a constitutive model which can appropriately express the mechanical behavior of soft rock. In this research, a series of drained triaxial compression tests were carried out to modify the original constitutive model proposed by Nakai and Hinokio (2004). Based on the experimental results, the change of the yield surface during the shearing process was proposed. As the result, the stress-strain behaviors under different confining stresses were reproduced quantitatively by a modified constitutive model.
