Finite element method
<p>The use of granular column is one of the ground improvement methods used for soft soils. This method improves the foundation soils mechanical properties by displacing the soft soil with the compacted granular columns. The columns have high permeability that can accelerate the excess pore water pressure produced in soft soils and increase the undrained s...

<p>A numerical model to simulate the mechanical behavior of soils is presented in this first part of the present work.<br /> This paper reports some advances obtained in the first stage of an ongoing research, which aims to develop a robust and<br /> efficient algorithm for consolidation analyses of saturated/unsaturated soils. Hence, the prese...

<p>A numerical model to simulate the mechanical behavior of soils was introduced in Part 1 of this paper (also published in this issue). Detailed information about the analytical model were presented, where the critical state theory for soil<br /> mechanics was considered in the context of the elastoplastic formulation. Moreover, an efficient numeric...
