    Abstract

    An elastic-plastic model for describing the stress-strain behaviour of a clay is presented. The model is based on the Modified Cam-Clay model, but includes an additional yield surface to model failure of overconsolidated samples on a Hvorslev surface. The model is used to predict the behaviour of a kaolinite in a number of repeated loading tests, based on the results of monotonic triaxial compression and extension tests. Special account is taken in the model of the possibility of the clay being unsaturated.
