Literary linguistics: Open Access research in English language

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by English Studies at Strathclyde. Particular research specialisms include literary linguistics, the study of literary texts using techniques drawn from linguistics and cognitive science.

The team also demonstrates research expertise in Renaissance studies, researching Renaissance literature, the history of ideas and language and cultural history. English hosts the Centre for Literature, Culture & Place which explores literature and its relationships with geography, space, landscape, travel, architecture, and the environment.

Abstract

In this paper, we study the influence of the scaling functions in Perzyna's type elasto-viscoplastic models for predicting time-dependent behaviour of natural clays. The constitutive models were developed based on the overstress theory with different scaling functions and on the elastoplastic model S-CLAY1S which accounts for induced anisotropy and gradual degradation of apparent soil bonds. Laboratory tests were simulated on natural clays under one-dimensional and triaxial conditions to evaluate the scaling function influence in the modelling of the strain-rate effect on soil strength and creep effect. The influence of scaling functions on modelling the time-dependent behaviour under pressuremeter condition was also numerically examined. This test is treated as an example of a boundary value problem, which also allows us to see if this in situ testing is capable of deriving the parameters controlling the time-dependent behaviour.
