    The development of constitutive models that will actually be used by geotechnical engineers requires a combination of successful simulation and calibration with physical reasonableness and with a ring of familiarity. The models described here have therefore been developed hierarchically from concepts of strength and stiffness with which most practising engineers are familiar. Two lines of development have been followed: Mohr-Coulomb and Cam clay.
