This user defined soil model, developed in cooperation with Graz University of Technology, will allow users to take into account time dependent strength and stiffness of concrete, strain hardening/ softening in compression and tension as well as creep and shrinkage. Most of the input parameters for the shotcrete model can be derived from standard uniaxial tension and compression tests. While the model was mainly developed to model the behaviour of shotcrete, it has also proven useful in applications related to soil improvements, for example jet grout columns.
In order to obtain the model, send your request to email@example.com. Support on the use of the shotcrete model is only provided for this DLL under the conditions of the PLAXIS VIP support service and Article 10 of the End-User Licence Agreement.
