A viscoplastic constitutive relation of the endochronic type (i.e. the inelastic strain increments are characterized by an intrinsic time) is formulated to describe the behavior of transversely isotropic clays produced by one-dimensional consolidation. The formulation contains eight material parameters in addition to those needed for isotropic clays. Experimental curves of axial strain for various anisotropically consolidated clays have been fit by a time-independent version of the theory, and a satisfactory agreement has been achieved. -from ASCE Publications Abstracts
