Document Type: Book - Proceedings


Papers and discussions from the workshop on limit equilibrium, plasticity, and generalized stress-strain in geotechnical engineering are presented. The papers address aspects of the problems of modeling, testing and evaluation, as well as examine the deficiencies, merits, and requirements for successful solution of the problem of specifications of proper and pertinent soil constitutive relationships and yield/failure criteria. The focus of the papers is on predictive models and formulations presently available for stress-strain and the plastic yielding of soils, and the requirements and procedures needed to provide a more accurate modeling of the stress-strain and yield performance of soils. A main concern is the accurate and proper formulation of stress-strain relations and yield theories applicable to soils subjected to various stress paths and stress histories. Several predictive models, reported in recent literature, are examined and studied. These models range from empirical/phenomenological models to forms of cap and state boundary models.
