Thermodynamical approach for CamClay-family models with Roscoe-type dilatancy rules. (English) Zbl 0805.73007

The thermodynamical approach is applied to the CamClay model with the Roscoe dilatancy rule. A dissipation function and free energy are specified in terms of kinematic variables (i.e. state and internal variables), and the material response is derived entirely from these functions.
