Who Needs Constitutive Models?

John P Carter

The lecture will chart the development of constitutive models used to represent the mechanical behaviour of soils and provide an overview of the principles and the main features of exsiting, widely used constitutive models for soil. The clear intention is to emphasise the physical basis of these models, rather than their mathematical complexity.
