The Characterization of the Yield Surface for Fine-Grained Sediments

Hanley, Anthony.

Abstract: The yield surface is a contour in stress space that separates a material as behaving elastically from plastically. The yield surface is fundamental to most mathematical soil models which are used as the basis for many modern day finite element software packages. Most model formulations prescribe the yield surface as an elliptical shape symmetrical about the consolidation axis, however, t... read more
