Hi

Can anybody make it clear, how the soft soil creep model in PLAXIS takes the immediate settlement in to consideration?

Im modelling the oedometer tests in PLAXIS, and I found that the settlement estimated from the experiments is higher than what PLAXIS gives. I wonder if it could be because of the immediate settlement.

Hello,
That could be true. Im not that much familiar with plaxis, but I think that you should be careful with procedure for calculating settlement, first calculate E-P deformation then consolidate.
Hope it helps.
