The experimental behavior of natural Pisa clay under complex stress paths is simulated by an enhanced anisotropic elastoplastic bounding surface model. In its present application, the model has nine parameters and focuses on the basic features of clay behavior, such as yielding, critical state, overconsolidation and plastic anisotropy. The model is first calibrated against the test results obtained from tri-axial compression tests and subsequently used to predict the behavior of true tri-axial tests. The overall agreement between the model predictions and the experimental data is very good for proportional loading tests in both meridional and deviatoric stress spaces. The result of prediction is also compared with the original simulations that were conducted by an advanced clay model.
