This thesis is concerend with the stiffness of soil at small strains and constitutive models that can be applied to simulate this. The main conern is with the development of a model, but it also provides much information and data that may be helpful in using it. This information and data comprise an introduction to available small-strian stiffness testing methods, many empirical small-strain stiffness correlations and sample model applicationtions.
