Peculiarities of the application of endochronic theory of plasticity to studythe deformation of soils and building materials

Monitoring and testing of buildings and structures

This article contains an analytical overview of the basic and modern works on endochronic theory of plasticity. Rationality of this theory using for stress-strain state of soils and building materials studying is concluded by means of analysis of the basic tenets of endochronic theory. This non-classic theory of plasticity is usefull for strain analysis of such materials because it is not based on the construction of the loading surface for admission to the residual strain. Such a construction is very difficult for these materials.
