The NorSand constitutive model in SIGMA/W can be used to simulate loose and dense sand behaviour in both drained and undrained conditions. This webinar will introduce you to the NorSand material model and walk you through the parameterisation process using practical examples in GeoStudio.

The NorSand constitutive model is a reference for static liquefaction modelling of loose sands. Through its formulation based on critical state theory, it can adequately simulate loose and dense sand behaviour, both in drained and undrained conditions. This webinar introduces the NorSand soil model and it’s implementation in SIGMA/W. A practical example showing the parameterisation of the model using triaxial compression tests is included.
