The project aims at increasing credibility of the design of geotechnical structures resulting in improving their safety and lifetime.
There are thre main steps defined in the project:
- A methodology for calibrating advanced constitutive models will be formulated including Hypoplastic clay, von Volffersdorff Hypoplastic model for sand and Cam clay model.
- Based on the proposed calibration method a freeware product will be developed to allow to obtain material parameters of specified models adopting data provided by standard laboratory geotechnical measurements.
- A carefully prepared experimental program covering a large variety of soils will provide base for classification of soils and determination of associated ranges of material parameters to fill the gap between theory and practical application of these models.
