    Abstract

    A technique to predict the stress-strain behavior of clays along various stress paths is presented. The experimental results of stress-controlled triaxial pure shear and consolidation tests conducted on normally consolidated and lightly overconsolidated samples are given, and a method to evaluate the parameters required for prediction by the proposed technique is discussed. Comparison between experimental and predicted stress-strain behavior of normally consolidated and lightly overconsolidated samples along stress paths shows that the technique predicts the behavior quite well.
