Boston blue clay is a low-plasticity marine clay of moderate sensitivity. This paper gives a detailed evaluation of the predictive capabilities and limitations of a new constitutive model through comparisons with laboratory test data for Boston blue clay. The main focus of these evaluations is predictions of anisotropic stress-strain behavior using data from two special laboratory shears: the directional shear cell and the multidirectional direct simple shear apparatus.
