Many engineering problems in geotechnics can be linked to excavations in hard soils or in soft rocks. Challenges already arise within the characterization of the material in situ, which is fundamental for all (numerical) calculations. Incomplete descriptions of the composite, its constituents and the material behaviour, or the use of unsuitable characterization methods, eventually result in an inadequate design. This paper contributes towards closing the research gap related to the numerical simulation of hard soils and soft rocks.
