Hardening soil model

The stress-strain behaviour of 85 overconsolidated clay samples from Campo de Gibraltar Flysch Through Domain (Algeciras Unit, South Spain) is presented and discussed. The samples were identified and classified following ASTM standards while their chemical and mineralogical composition were determined by chemical and X-ray techniques. Several samples we...

In this article, the mechanical parameters of characteristic soils of the city of Brasília are obtained, calibrated and validated for the Hardening Soil (HS) model, based on laboratory and field test results obtained in previous research studies conducted in the Experimental Field of the University of Brasília (CEGUnB). The strength and compressibi...

This work aims to be a contribution for a better knowledge of anchored earth retaining structures, providing preliminary guidelines for their correct design, by establishing starting points. It also constitutes the introduction to a second paper in which an innovative solution for preliminary design is presented. Starting from an extensive parametric st...
