Recent and current developments in the understanding and description of soil behaviour and in the numerical analysis of geotechnical problems are discussed in this paper. An attempt has been made to relate these topics to the needs of practising engineers concerned with the design of major projects. The discussion of soil properties is concentrated on the pattern of behaviour of clays in monotonic tests, and the important correlations of the strength and stiffness of clays with the level of… CONTINUE READING
