Abstract

Soil is a complex system of grains of different shapes, sizes and minerals as well as voids filled with water and/or air. Soil is heterogeneous, anisotropic and inelastic medium with its properties dependent on previous loading history, state of stress and its path in static condition. In cyclic condition, soil properties can also depend on the amplitude, number of cycles and even frequency of loading if fine grained.
