Modeling of the Cyclic Behavior of Loose Sand by an Elasto-Plastic Fuzzy Set Model

Abstract:

Article Preview

The paper focuses on the development of a cyclic plasticity model based on the fuzzy set theory, which is implemented as a computational tool in order to simplify the computer programming of the constitutive driver. The constitutive model is a rate independent elasto-plastic model which is capable of describing repeated load cycles, dilatancy, material memory, and critical state soil mechanics features. Also, with the aid of membership function, the validity of the constitutive model is enhanced by comparing the theoretical output with a set of experimental data obtained from a variety of cyclic triaxial tests of loose sand.
