CE-W06: Advanced Constitutive Models for Geomaterials Ruhr-Universität Bochum
The course deals with: Advanced Constitutive Models - Hardening Soil Small strain (HSS) model -Modified Cam-Clay (MCC) model -Hoek-Brown (HB) model -Hypoplasticity model -Calibration of advanced constitutive models Influence of the constitutive model on numerical simulations in Geotechnics for -Flat foundations -Retaining walls -Tunneling
Within the module CE-WP09 (Numerical Simulation in Geotechnicsand Tunneling), some basic and advanced constitutive models for geomaterials are introduced. In this course, further advanced constitutive models will be introduced and their relevance for different geotechnical applications will be discussed. One main objective of this course is to study the influence of different constitutive models on the numerical results for various geotechnical applications.
