This workshop will be fully dedicated to modelling undrained behaviour of soil. The difference between the use of effective strength parameters and undrained shear strength is discussed as well the importance of using advanced soil models. The day will end with an exercise on how to compare Plaxis results with known undrained strength data.
- Undrained soil behaviour
- Undrained behaviour of clays
- Shansep method
