Title: Three-dimensional analysis of embankments on soft soils incorporating vertical drains by finite element method
Issue Date: 2004
Abstract: Three-dimensional behaviour of an embankment on soft soils incorporating vertical drains is analysed by a numerical modelbased on the finite element method. The model, which incorporates the Biots consolidation theory (coupled formulation of the flowand equilibrium equations) and constitutive relations simulated by the pqh critical state model, is applied on both the embankmentwith vertical drains (three-dimensional analysis) and the same problem but without vertical drains (two-dimensional analysis).Special emphasis is given to the analysis, during and after the construction period, of the excess pore pressures, settlements, horizontaldisplacements and stress levels.
