MODELLING

CURRENT DEVELOPMENT OF POKROVSKY'S METHOD OF MODELLING COMPOSITE CONSTRUCTION INVOLVING LARGER VOLUMES OF SOIL, AND THE ANALYSIS OF COMPOSITE SOIL CONSTRUCTION BY METHODS ESTABLISHED FOR STEEL STRUCTURES ARE DISCUSSED. IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE ELEMENTARY VOLUME BEHAVES ACCORDING TO THE PRINCIPLE OF EFFECTIVE STRESS; THAT ALL TIME EFFECTS RELATE TO STEADY OR TRANSIENT FLOW OF A PORE FLUID PHASE; AND THAT THE EFFECTIVELY STRESSED SOIL PHASE IS A RIGID OR ELASTIC OR PLASTIC CONTINUUM WHICH IS TIME-INDEPENDENT. POKROVSKY'S METHOD IS APPLIED TO THE VARIATION OF WATER LEVELS AND TO THE APPLICATION OF EXTERNAL STATIC LOADING.
