Paper Title:
Duncan-Chang Nonlinear Elastic Model Considered Loess Structure
  Abstract

Duncan-Chang nonlinear model has been modified and applied to the structural loess calculation. Based on structural studies and conventional triaxial tests, this paper has analyzed the mechanical properties of intact loess and the relationship between the stress ratio structural parameters and the strain, then the expression of generalized shear strain and stress ratio structural parameters are given to facilitate the engineering applications. On this basis, the stress-strain curve of intact loess was corrected by the use of the stress ratio structural parameters. The form of the intact loess stress-strain curves which have been revised has changed hardening from the softening or weak softening. The results show that the modified stress-strain curves of intact loess can apply Duncan- Chang nonlinear model to calculate and the model parameters are reasonable and effective. This method provides Duncan-Chang nonlinear model which is widely used in engineering with a new ways and means in intact structural loess application.
