ANISOTROPIC ELASTIC PARAMETERS FOR SOIL

THE CONCEPT OF SOIL AS AN ANISOTROPIC ELASTIC MATERIAL IS CONSIDERED AND THE THEORETICAL BOUNDING VALUES OF THE RELEVANT ELASTIC PARAMETERS ARE DESCRIBED. THE BOUNDING VALUES OF THE PARAMETERS ARE REPRESENTED IN THREE-DIMENSIONAL SPACE. WITHIN THE SPACE ANY GIVEN MATERIAL IS REPRESENTED BY A POINT, AND POINTS IN CERTAIN REGIONS REPRESENT PARTICULAR TYPES OF MATERIAL. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR INFINITE BULK MODULUS, UNCOUPLED VOLUMETRIC AND DISTORTIONAL PHENOMENA AND DILATANT SOIL ARE REPRESENTED WITHIN THE BOUNDS OF POSSIBLE MATERIALS. /RRL(A)/
