The primary objective of the current research was to develop a new method for utilizing the advanced soil constitutive models alongside the simple soil constitutive models used in everyday calculations of geotechnical engineers. In order to achieve this purpose, two advanced soil constitutive models: (1) Plastic Hardening Model and (2) Modified Cam-clay model are introduced. Then, the methods and procedures that are used to derive the parameters of these models are described. Finally, a comprehensive and applicable procedure is introduced to use these advanced models while having the parameter values of simple Mohr-Coulomb model.
