Abstract

In the present study, we newly interpret the undrained creep rupture of normally consolidated soil as a result of the change in the initial higher bifurcation mode to lower one during pore water migration within the clay; i.e., “mode switching”. The computation is performed not as a single soil element as in the classical soil mechanics, but as a soil-water coupled initial-boundary value problem of a soil specimen, in which only the “inviscid” original Cam-clay model with the subloading surface concept and the Darcy’s law are used. As a result, just after the constant applied load, the axial strain is progressing at a very slow rate, however, the strain rate increases immediately when the strain reaches 5.7%. During the time, it is observed that the excess pore pressure tends to be homogeneous and then rises again due to the occurrence of softening in some element.
