Paper Title:
An Improved Elasto-Plastic Model for Unsaturated Soils
  Abstract

The strength and deformation behaviors of unsaturated soil can be approximately described by elasto-plastic constitutive model that was proved by abundance academic and test researches. The Barcelona elastic-plastic model is an excellent model that can simulate the strength and deformation of unsaturated soil. But their calculated result of shear strength is low. So an improved Barcelona model is settled by using drop-shaped shear yield surface and hardening theory of dual stress. The results show that the improved model can more accurately predict the strength and deformation behaviors of unsaturated soil under suction-controlled triaxial compression stress states.
