Anisotropic elastic, failure and post-failure behaviour of Opalinus Clay determined from laboratory tests

In laboratory tests, the Opalinus Clay was investigated to characterize the anisotropic elastic (transverse isotropic) and thermal expansion properties. The failure and post-failure behaviour was described by determining the Mohr-Coulomb parameters. The data can be used for constitutive equations e.g. in finite element programs.
