Abstract

This paper reviews the applicability of several of the recently developed elasto-plastic and endo-chronic constitutive theories for predicting dynamic soil behavior with parameters determined from static shear tests. Based on this review, a simple procedure for predicting equivalent linear shear modulus and the fraction of critical damping from the results of triaxial compression tests with an unload-reload cycle is developed.
