Abstract

The proposed analytical model describes the anisotropic, elasto-plastic, path-dependent, non-linear, stress-strain-strength properties of inviscid saturated soils subjected to complicated, and in particular, to cyclic loading paths. The model's extreme versatility and its accuracy are demonstrated by applying it to present the behavior of a particular clay under both monotonic and cyclic loading conditions. Threrafter, the model is used in a finite element formualtion to analyze the interaction of an offshore gravity structure with its soil foundation when subjected to both static and cyclic wave forces.
