A simple and rigorous formulation of elastic component of elastoplastic model for geomaterials is presented. Although linear relation between elastic volumetric strain and mean principal stress in log scale is assumed in most of the usual models, linear relation between each principal stress and the corresponding principal elastic strain in log scale is assumed. Incorporating Poisson's ratio, three principal stresses vs. three elastic principal strain relation is obtained. Also, assuming coaxially between stresses and elastic strains, this relation can be transformed to stress- elastic strain relation in general coordinate. The material parameters of the proposed model of the elastic component are the same as those of the usual models, i.e., swelling index κ and Poisson's ratio ν. This proposed model can describe typical unloading behaviour of various shear tests and constant stress ratio unloading tests reported before.
