Constitutive Modelling in Geomechanics: Introduction by Alexander Puzrin

By Alexander Puzrin

The objective of this ebook is to bridge the distance among the conventional Geomechanics and Numerical Geotechnical Modelling with functions in technology and perform. Geomechanics is never taught in the rigorous context of Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics, whereas in terms of Numerical Modelling, commercially on hand finite parts or finite transformations software program make the most of constitutive relationships in the rigorous framework. for that reason, younger scientists and engineers need to study the hard topic of constitutive modelling from a application guide and infrequently prove with utilizing unrealistic types which violate the legislation of Thermodynamics.

The booklet is introductory, under no circumstances does it declare any completeness and state-of-the-art in this kind of dynamically constructing box as numerical and constitutive modelling of soils. the writer offers uncomplicated figuring out of traditional continuum mechanics ways to constitutive modelling, which may function a starting place for exploring extra complicated theories. a substantial attempt has been invested right here into the readability and brevity of the presentation. a unique function of this ebook is in exploring thermomechanical consistency of all offered constitutive versions in an easy and systematic manner.

The boundary conditions fall into four categories: a) Kinematic boundary conditions are specified in terms of displacements on some sections of the boundary. b) Static boundary conditions are specified in terms of the tractions on other sections of the boundary. These are often loosely referred to as “stress” boundary conditions, but in fact there is a distinction between stresses (which are second order tensors), and the tractions on a free surface, which are defined as the forces per unit area on the Part I: Introduction to Continuum Mechanics 56 surface.

Assume that V1 z V 2 z V 3 . Then the stress vectors on the principal planes n 1 and n 2 are given by V 1 Vij n j1 V1ni 1 and V 2 Vij n j2 V 2 ni 2 Multiplying these two equations by n 2 and n 1 , respectively, we obtain: V ij n j1 ni 2 From V ij V1ni 1 ni 2 and Vij n j2 ni 1 V ji it follows that V ij n j1 ni 2 V 2 ni 2 ni 1 V ij ni 1 n j2 , therefore: (V1  V 2 )ni(1) ni( 2) 0 which for V1 z V 2 z V 3 is only possible when n (1) A n ( 2) . In order to find the principle directions, we solve 3 independent systems of linear algebraic equations: Vij  V1Gij n j1 0 ; Vij  V 2 Gij n j2 0 ; V ij  V 3G ij n j3 each supplemented by the condition n12  n22  n32 1 .
