Primary loading again follows a linear stress path according to eqn (1). Unloading follows a linear stress path of constant slope, regardless of previous stress history, according to the equation (4) Advanced geotechnical analyses 52 FIG. 5. Basic components of the simplified general hysteretic loading/unloading stress-path model. where K2=the incremental coefficient of lateral earth pressure decrease for K0-unloading. Unloading results in relaxation of lateral stresses, but some fraction (F) of the peak lateral stresses induced during loading are retained.

This conceptual model and analytical technique represented a significant breakthrough in the development of methods for analysis of compaction-induced stresses. Indeed, this simple conceptual model is the underlying basis for the more complex behavioral models and finite element analysis techniques described in this chapter. These more advanced models and analysis techniques were developed in response to three principal shortcomings in Broms’ original methodology: (1) Broms’ model for stresses generated by hysteretic loading and unloading was unrealistic inasmuch as it (a) provided for no lateral stress increase with ‘reloading’ unless and until the K0-line was reached, and (b) provided for no relaxation (decrease) in lateral stress with unloading unless and until the passive-failure line was reached.
