CycLiq

Description

CycLiq is a unified constitutive model for large post-liquefaction shear deformation of sand (Wang et al, 2014; Wang 2014/2016). The model provides a unified description of sand of different conditions from pre- to post-liquefaction under monotonic and cyclic loading, based on mechanisms proposed by Zhang and Wang (2012). The constitutive model and its numerical implementation have been validated against drained and undrained triaxial experiments, undrained cyclic torsional experiments and centrifuge experiments, and used to analysis on structures in liquefiable ground (Wang, 2014; Wang et al, 2016, 2017; Chen et al, 2018; Zou et al, 2019), showing the great capabilities of the model in simulating sand response of a wide range of densities and confining pressure, and highlighting its advantage in simulating large post-liquefaction shear deformations.
