I need to use granular soil load on buried structures in SW simulation. Doues anyone have any experience in using the Drucker-Prager method?
setup of the analysis will be the same as all other simulation problems
the only difference will be using the material property: http://help.solidworks.com/2013/English/SolidWorks/cworks/c_Plasticity_Drucker_Prager_Model.htm
this is well documented in the help, the nonlinear/static training and also in the solidworks KB
Thank you Jared. So far for theory, I got so far. I probably should have been more clear. Under "experience" I meant have you been able to get the various constants for any soil material you were using?
collection has always been done the traditional way, internet + library search or experiment. generally for our consulting and one-on-one training, customers bring us that information to use and generally it is done using those methods.
Thank you Jared.
