SANICLAY

On implementation and performance of an anisotropic constitutive model for clays. Numerical implementation of an anisotropic constitutive model for clays (SANICLAY) is presented. Moreover, a case study in which a soil embankment is placed on a K0-consolidated over-consolidated clay is analyzed by conducting an elastoplastic fully-coupled finite element analysis. It is shown that anisotropy has significant impact on the ground settlement caused by the placement of soil embankment and on the pore pressure generation and dissipation within the foundation soil. The simulations using SANICLAY favorably compare with the field measurements of ground settlement and pore pressure. The drawbacks of the use of an isotropic elastoplastic model (Cam Clay) are also demonstrated.
