Creep consolidation in land subsidence modelling; integrating geotechnical and hydrological approaches in a new MODFLOW package (SUB-CR)

Kooi, Henk; Erkens, Gilles

Creep and secondary consolidation are important phenomena in settlement caused by surface loads, but not commonly considered in land subsidence driven by groundwater extraction. To explore the role of creep in such settings, a new MODFLOW-2005 land subsidence package was developed that incorporates a creep formulation gleaned from geotechnical software. This formulation, which is based on the isotache concept, is an extension of, and incorporates the classical elastoplastic compression model of Terzaghi as a limiting case. The package is introduced, and results are presented of an application to a site in northern Jakarta. It is shown that the isotache model requires considerably higher overconsolidation levels of clays than the Terzaghi model, and that creep contributes to subsidence long after drawdown in pumped aquifers has stabilized, a phenomenon that is traditionally attributed to “hydrodynamic lag”.
