We want to simulate a condition where a Pipe of (1 Meter for now) is resting on the Soil.
We have the Soil properties that can be entered in Drucker Prager model of Solidworks Non-linear.
Our intention is to calculate the Soil sinkage(Or the displacement of a pipe in the soil due to Gravity loading)
Soil is modeled as a separate block.and pipe is resting on it.
Which boundary conditions shall we use in the Model???
Currently I am fixing the base of a Soil block and treating the system(Pipe and a Soil block) to be Bonded.
But I am getting Numerical difficulties while Solving.
I increased the convergence tolerance and reduced the time steps.But I got weird results.
Thanks in Advance.
Did you ever find a solution for this. I am wondering if Solidworks is capable of assessing the interaction or whether something like Abaqus is required.
