Synopsis:

The course is devoted to the measurements and modeling of basic laboratory tests using the finite element method. Attention is concentrated on the description of nonlinear response of soil with the help of traditional material models. Knowledge gained from the modeling of simple laboratory tests will be exploited in the analysis of selected geotechnical structures. All numerical simulations will be performed employing the GEO5 FEM software package.

Requirements:

Evaluation of the performed laboratory tests. Calibration of the material model Cam clay using the Geo5 FEM software exploiting the conducted laboratory measurements. Lecture attendance is compulsory.

Syllabus of lectures:

Outline of lectures corresponds to the content of the course.

Syllabus of tutorials:

There are no problem sessions.

Study Objective:

The course objective is to provide a link between laboratory measurements and basic constitutive models and their exploitation in the modeling of selected types of geotechnical structures using the finite element method. The students will also become familiar with the application of the finite element method in the modeling of oedometric and triaxial laboratory tests and calibration of a selected material model.
