A NEW APPROACH TO THE MECHANICS OF SOIL BEHAVIOR

IN THIS PAPER A NEW APPROACH TO THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF SOILS IS INTRODUCED. IT TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE INTERMEDIATE PRINCIPAL, NORMAL STRESS, OR THE THIRD INVARIANT OF THE DEVIATOR STRESS TENSOR. A PHYSICAL INTERPRETATION FOR THE THIRD INVARIANT OF THE DEVIATOR STRESS TENSOR IS SUGGESTED. THE HENCKY DEFINITION OF STRAIN (REINER - 1960) IS USED THROUGHOUT THE PAPER. THE STRESS AND STRAIN TRAJECTORIES ARE CLASSIFIED AS REGULAR OR IRREGULAR AND AN ANALYSIS OF THE LABORATORY STANDARD TESTS IS MADE ON BASIS OF THE NEW IDEAS PRESENTED. MECHANICAL PROPERTIES FUNCTIONS ARE DISCUSSED WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON THE FAILURE FUNCTION OF MATERIALS. /AUTHOR/
