This presentation covered a methodology to simulate the large deformation behaviour of sensitive clays in finite element analyses based on a nonlocal strain-softening approach. The results obtained from cyclic undrained T-bar penetration simulations using the methodology were presented,
highlighting the limitations of the use of standard element tests (e.g. triaxial tests) to calibrate the
model input parameters that control the strain-softening aspect of the constitutive law, and the need
for a constitutive law that captures the partial recovery of sensitivity during consolidation.
