A New Damage Variable and its Evaluation Law for Structured Soil
Set out from a basic idea that damage is a course of energy dissipation, a new damage variable is present. The damage variable is obtained for arbitrary strain state of soil according to the superimposing principle of compatible probability event for volumetric strain and shear strain. Through the analysis of a series of triaxial experimental results of structured soil, a new damage evaluation equation is put forward. The computation results tally with the experimental data show it is reasonable that this new damage variable and its evaluation law for structured soil.
