Numerous laboratory studies have highlighted the importance of stiffness anisotropy for certain soils at both small and large strains. However, most commercially-available constitutive models do not account for this behaviour. This presentation will describe how two soil models, BRICK and M3SKH , have been enhanced to consider stiffness anisotropy and other key features of London Clay for industrial use by my PhD sponsor Arup Geotechnics. The importance of these features will be demonstrated through the simulation of nonconventional laboratory tests performed in a hollow cylinder apparatus as well as finite element analyses of real case histories.
