Development of NorSand constitutive material model for Optum G2

By Veronika In Geotechnical Engineering No comments

Red Earth Engineering is proud to be partnering with Optum Computational Engineering on the development of a NorSand constitutive material model for the Optum G2 software. NorSand provides a robust tool to perform analysis of static liquefaction for important soil structures like tailing dams, as recently used to investigate the Fundão and Cadia TSF failures.

Optum G2 is a complete 2D plane strain and axisymmetric software solution including elasto-plastic analysis, limit analysis, groundwater flow, consolidation and shear strength reduction (SSR) factor of safety calculations.
