Determination of parameters for a hyperbolic model of soils

I am dismayed that Geotechnical Engineering should have
published this paper, which encourages the use of non-linear
elastic modelling for soils. The hyperbolic model of Duncan
and Chang,1
which forms the basis of the paper, has been
superseded many years ago for modelling boundary value
problems in soil. For a number of very good reasons, all serious
modelling of soil non-linearity now employs plasticity theory
