3 Path Independence and Material Stability for Solls 37 tion but instead indicates that lack of tensile strength is the governing feature. Anyappropriate consistent mechanism of energy dissipation is likely to do as weIl. Material Stability and Stress-Strain Relations for Water-Soil Systems The inelastic volume changes which occur in a saturated soil are in marked contrast to the reversible elastic behavior of structural metals under normal variation of hydrostatic pressure. However, as already discussed, this difference is not a crucial one in itself.

An attempt to describe real behavior observed experimentally leads to ever increasing elaboration in detail of a mathematical or physical model as more types of tests are made. The desire to design efficiently and economically leads to the opposite requirement of the simplest of idealizations suitable for the limited purpose in hand. Therefore, for metal structures, perfect plasticity is an excellent design assumption, while very complex stressstrain relations which inc1ude work-hardening, BAUSCHINGER and allied cross-effects provide only crude approximations to the actual details of the distribution of stress and strain in a structure subjected to the usual complex pattern of loading history.
