I am happy to announce that our pre-print paper, “The GA-cal software for the automatic calibration of soil constitutive laws: a tutorial and a user manual”, is available on researchgate (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/365784111_The_GA-cal_software_for_the_automatic_calibration_of_soil_constitutive_laws_a_tutorial_and_a_user_manual) and Axive (https://arxiv.org/abs/2211.13652).
This work provides a user guide and a simple tutorial of GA-cal, a Fortran software for automatically calibrating constitutive laws using Genetic Algorithms (GA) optimization. Currently, the code allows the calibration of the Sand Hypoplastic law, proposed by von Wolffersdorff, with the oedometer and triaxial drained test data. The implemented subroutines can be easily extended to solve other regression or optimization problems, including different tests and constitutive models.
