For convenience, let H(x, y) = [H.sub.0] denote the first integral of system (7), where the implicit function H(x, y) = H([x.sub.0], [y.sub.0]) is divided into upper and lower branches by isoclinic line dx/dt = 0 denoted by [mathematical expression not reproducible], where the starting point is [P.sub.0].
As the distance between the [pi] plane and the origin of the principle stress space coordinates system depends only on the hydrostatic pressure [[sigma].sub.m], when the internal stress of rock mass changes, that is, when [[sigma].sub.m] changes, the yielding surface will be scaled in the meridian plane along the isoclinic line direction (see Figure 4(c)).
The observed isoclinic lines, i.e., the lines that connect points with the same direction of stress were found to spread out of the gate toward the edges.
