Use the suction option in SoilTest to replicate and simulate suction-controlled lab tests. Compose plots with available test parameters and results types in SoilTest and calibrate model parameters for the Barcelona Basic model. Once the model parameters are calibrated, apply the model in boundary value problems and assess the effects of wetting and drying, i.e. collapse upon wetting, elastic swelling or shear strength reduction due to a decrease in suction.
