Since 2007, soilmodels.info website has been reached by thousands of geotechnical engineers to download free implementations of advanced constitutive models for geomaterials. Ten years later, we introduce its successor, “SoilModels : Hub For Geotechnical Professionals”. SoilModels transformed to community site joining advanced professionals in all fields of geotechnical engineering, motivating to share ideas and discuss new developments. You may find here all the implementations from the original soilmodels.info website, and much more…
Constitutive Model Database lists constitutive models registered in SoilModels database. Constitutive models are added upon request of users. Constitutive models which are either fully docummented including their mathematical formulation in publicly available article/report, or whose computer implementation is publicly available including source code, are eligible for listing in SoilModels database. Model to be listed also needs to be implemented in some publicly available finite element code (either free or commercial).
Software Database lists Finite Element Codes and Calibration Software registered in SoilModels database. Software, including commercial finite element codes, is added upon request of users free of charge. Only codes which either accept user-defined constitutive models, or which have advanced models available internally, are eligible for listing in SoilModels database. Any model above linear elastic perfectly plastic is considered as “advanced”.
SoilModels is a membership site with two membership levels: “Members” and “Consultants”. Anyone registering to SoilModels becomes a Member automatically after account approval. Members can download software and contribute to discussions in our open Forum, both as post authors and as commenters of existing posts. Members are shown on the map in the Members Directory, but they can not be contacted through the SoilModels interface. Any Member can optionally hide his/her profile from the Members Directory using Privacy tab under account settings. Any “Member” account is automatically upgraded to “Consultant” account once the profile is fully completed. “Consultants” can be, in addition, contacted through the soilmodels.com interface (e-mail address is however never revealed to the users). This contact form can optionally be disabled by the user.
