A hypoplastic constitutive model for the time dependent behavior of soils will be developed. The model parameters will be determined with the help of own laboratory tests and test results from literature. The constitutive model will be implemented in a Finite Element code. The numerical model will be used to study the creep failure of soil slopes. We will carry out centrifuge model tests to study the failure mechanisms of creeping slopes. Moreover, the numerical results will be compared with the centrifuge model tests.
