SummaryThe formation of strain localization influences the stability and stiffness of the soil mass or geosystem. The thickness of shear bands provides insight into overall strength and stiffness inside the granular body, and the shear band angle gives information about the failure surface in a given soil or soil mass. Thus, it is important to be able to predict when a shear band forms and how this zone of intense deformation is located and oriented within the granular medium. A rational finite… CONTINUE READING
