AN EFFICIENT METHOD OF ANALYSIS FOR THE DRAINED AND UNDRAINED BEHAVIOUR OF AN ELASTIC SOIL

In this paper a method of analysis for the drained and undrained behaviour of a saturated soil with an elastic anisotropic skeleton is proposed. The method depends upon embedding the problem in a series of problems depending upon a parameter, then expanding the solution in terms of that parameter. The method has the advantage that both the drained and undrained behaviour can be found simultaneously and the problems of a singular stiffness matrix usually associated with undrained behaviour of an elastic soil is avoided.(a) /TRRL/
