1357 The boundary initial value problems of e l a s t o dynamics are formulated as boundary integral equations. It is shown that these integral equations may be solved by time-stepping nmnerical methods for the unknown boundary values. A specific ~ i c a l scheme is presented for antiplans strain problems amd a numerical example is given. 79500~ GEOMECHANICS OF OROGENETIC EVENTS AND THEIR ~w~t~fS ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF ROCK STRUCTURES ON SUBSURFACE A~D UNDERGROUND.

z979, ?~65-48o A 3-dimensional elaatic-plaat£c isotrol~c workhardening constitutive relatlonab~p is developed for slnn~lating the atress-strain-pare l~essure response of fluid saturated sand. The model rel~educes the hysteretic behaviour of the material under hydrostatic amd deviatccic states of stress accountirg fer ahear-iniuced volume chamge add %he effect of superimposed hydrostatic stress on the shearimg response. The behaviour of the constitutive modal udder axisy~ic triaxlal test corzlitions is examined add correlated with exlx~rlmental results for a fluid saturated ss/rl at both loose and dense initial states of compaction.

1979, P519"537 A constitutive law is developed to modal the behavlour of normslly consolidated Isotropic cohesive soils under multidimensional stress c~ strain paths. This law represents %he endochronlc form of plasticity add involves a m~mber of material variables used to model strain softemlmg and hardemimg, densification and dilatancy, friction, strain rate behaviour ard pore ~¢essure response. Data from the literature are used to demonstrate 1~e applicability of the approach to norm~11y consolidated clays.
