|Report||In the framework of my doctoral work on complex mechanical behavior of structured soils with application to mechanized tunneling processes, I undertook a research stay with Prof. Taiebat at UBC in Vancouver, Canada (February/March 2015). It was the continuation of the international research project with Prof. Dafalias (UCDavis) and Prof. Kaliakin (UDel) on adequate constitutive modeling of natural soil behavior, funded by RUB Research School Plus in the beginning of 2014. The collaboration with Prof. Taiebat resulted in successful numerical implementation, calibration and validation of a sophisticated constitutive soil model using an innovative approach.|
