Abstract
The paper addresses the issue of modelling the hydromechanical behaviour of swelling clays that exhibit evidence of multi-porosity. A double structure constitutive model developed for such materials is presented fi rst followed by a double porosity formulation intended for the performance of coupled hydromechanical numerical analysis. Hydraulic equilibrium between porosity levels is not assumed; instead a water exchange term is postulated. Constitutive model and formulation are then applied to t...
