Abstract

In this paper, a benchmark exercise from the DECOVALEX-2011 project is presented. Experimental results from a laboratory drying test in Opalinus Clay are used. First, the DECOVALEX project is introduced and the experimental setup of the laboratory drying test is described. Then the theoretical formulations and the parameters determination are explained. Finally, the modelling results obtained by the five different teams are compared to the measurements.
