The well-known Hardening Soil Model is used worldwide to model geotechnical engineering problems, such as deep excavations and embankment construction, because it captures several features of real soil behavior for both sandy soils and clays and silts.
This webinar briefly introduces the Hardening Soil Model theory and formulation. The creation of a SIGMA/W analysis using the Hardening Soil Model to simulate the triaxial test is included. You will be taken through a step-by-step procedure to calibrate the model and identify the model constants based on drained triaxial test results. The simulated results are compred to the laboratory data.
