There is definitely an informal community of people using deal.II for various problems in computational geomechanics, including geotechnical problems like consolidation analysis and slope stability. Over the years, some colleagues and I have accumulated quite a bit of infrastructure for these sorts of problems (including constitutive models like Modified Cam Clay). A few of us came to a decision recently that we should package and share this code with the broader community, but unfortunately this is still a work in progress. So the short answer to your question is that deal.II has been used for geotechnical problems, but there isn't any canned infrastructure available right now. We'd be happy to help you however we can in your own projects though. A UMAT interface sounds interesting, but what sorts of applications were you hoping to apply it to?
