Abstract. Stability of undrained shearing in a classical Cauchy continuum has been first analyzed by Rice (J Geophys Res 80(11) 1531–1536 1975) who showed that instability occurs when the underlying drained deformation becomes unstable (i.e. in the softening regime of the corresponding drained stress-strain curve).However Vardoulakis (Int J Numer Anal Methods Geomech 9 339–414 1985 Int
