Modeling the contractive behavior of soft clay in a heating test

(Nagoya Institute of Technology) Scientists at the Nagoya Institute of Technology illustrated using numerical simulation that a well-organized thermo-elastoplastic model can accurately explain the volumetric contraction of soft clay due to heating without the inclusion of any additional parameters. They also clarified that heating tests conducted in prior studies were not elementary tests, but instead reflected a boundary value problem.
