An incremental three-dimensional stress-strain relationship for concrete with induced anisotropy has been developed. The nonlinearity and path-dependency are modeled by expressing the elastic moduli at each increment as function of the octahedral and deviatoric strains, based on a uniaxial stochastic model developed earlier. Predictions of multiaxial response under proportional and nonproportional loading are in good agreement with experimental results.
