Geomaterial dynamic constitutive model (or dynamic stress–strain relationship) is the foundation for understanding the dynamic behaviors of geomaterial or geomaterial structure, which is under the dynamic loads (such as earthquake loads, wave loads, traffic loads, wind loads, etc.), and also the prerequisite of dynamic and stability analysis by numerical simulation methods (such as finite element method, boundary element method).
