Abstract

The soil modulus is stongly dependent on stress level and soil density; this means that the mathematical model for a soil mechanics problem should include the capability to vary the modulus at each discrete nodal point or element, and the specific modulus at a particular point for any given load increment should be dictated by the initial dry density of the soil at that point and the state of stress that exists prior to application of the load increment.
