Abstract

The proposed analytical model describes the anisotropic, elastoplastic, path-dependent stres-strain-strength properties of inviscid saturated soils subjected to complicated, and in particular, to cyclic loading paths. The formulation is general and incorporates both drained and undrained loading conditions. The model's extreme versatility and its accuracy are demonstrated by applying it to represent the undrained behavior of a particular clay under both monotonic and cyclic loading conditions. Thereafter, the model is used in a finite element formulation to analyze the interaction of an offshore gravity structure with its soil foundation when subjected to cyclic wave loading.
