Irreversibility in Cyclic Behaviour

  • Alexander M. Puzrin


In a typical drained triaxial compression test on slightly overconsolidated clay, after isotropic consolidation up to the pre-consolidation pressure \({{{p}'}_{c}}\) with subsequent unloading down to the initial mean effective stress \({{{p}'}_{0}}\), the sample is sheared along the straight effective stress path (Figure 20.1a).
