Abstract
Jurassic marls from Abadia, Portugal, were used in the construction of some motorway embankments. Large fragments of this evolving material remained after the construction process, and their degradation was of concern because of the expected change of the engineering properties of the compacted material. The material exhibits a very complex behaviour, which is difficult to reproduce with existing constitutive models for unsaturated structured materials. This paper focuses on understanding and pr...
