Tutorial 31 - Staged Embankment on Clay

The SHANSEP material model in Slide allows for the modeling of pore pressure dissipation in a clay foundation due to the staged addition of multiple layers of embankment material. The following analysis models the staged construction of an embankment on a clay foundation. The clay foundation is modeled with the SHANSEP strength model. The two layers of the embankment are modeled as Mohr-Coulomb materials.
