Soil Database

The characteristics of clayey and sandy soil samples used during the development and testing of the automatic calibration procedure are listed bellow. We also provide the optimal set of parameters for the corresponding material model. You can use these tables as a starting point about ranges of material model parameters in relation to basic index characteristics and soil classification.
