Hey guys,

Desai Yield Surface:

I have a hard time understanding the parameters of the model for soils. If I have three principle stresses, σ1, σ2, σ3. And R is defined as the Tri-axial strength in tension, how would I define R.

Lastly can I just say that
I1 = σ123
J2= 1/6 * ((σ12)2 +(σ23)2+(σ31)2)

R= I1 + √(2J2)Thanks!Yes, that is correct. R is the tri-axial strength in tension, which is calculated by adding the three principal stresses together and then taking the square root of twice the J2 parameter.
