From soft soil modelling to engineering application
Paper i proceeding, 2021

Soft soil engineering is still a challenge, in particular when we increasingly need to construct on densely populated urban areas next to existing structures, and need to deal with the effects of climate change. The paper discusses the systematic research by the author and her co-workers in the last 20 years that has resulted in the development and validation of advanced soil models, specifically geared for Scandinavian soft soil conditions. The culmination of this research is Creep-SCLAY1S, a rate dependent anisotropic model, which is backed by hierarchical development and systematic validation. Some recent examples of engineering applications where the model was used are are highlighted, in addition to the parameter determination and calibration.
