The Veda embankment is about 300 metres long, up to 16 metres high and is being built as a staged construction on vertically drained subsoil consisting of very loose post glacial sulphide clay and very loose glacial clay. The Veda trial embankment was built one year in advance in order to obtain essential knowledge about the behaviour of the subsoil when subjected to an embankment load. This paper present and discuss the process of using the measurements from the trial embankment together with laboratory tests in order to establish a numerical analysis for the Veda embankment, that describes the behaviour of the soil sufficiently well as a foundation for the design and prediction according to the observational method.
