Soils, like metals, can behave both elastically and plastically. Elastic deformation refers to the ability of the deformed material to return to its original dimensions. Plastic deformation refers to a condition of permanent deformation. For a soil in the elastic condition, a given applied force causes a known deformation. On removal of the force, recovery takes place.
