Abstract

A hierarchical concept is proposed for the development of constitutive models to account for various factors that influence behavior of (geologic) materials. It permits evolution of models of progressively higher grades from the basic model representing isotropic hardening with associative behavior. Factors such as non-associativeness and induced anisotropy due to friction and cyclic loading, and softening are introduced as corrections or perturbations to the basic model. The influence of these factors is captured through non-associativeness manifested by deviation from normality of the plastic strain increments to the yield surface, F. Details of four models: isotropic hardening with associative behavior, isotropic hardening with non-associative behavior, general anisotropic hardening and strain-softening with a damage variable are presented.
