I am running FEA simulations in Abaqus - I want to model dense, dry silica sand with grain diameters of approximately 0.3 mm. I'm using the Drucker Prager Cap model to simulate deformation. Does anyone know where I can find some triaxial test data to determine the parameters? I've been looking around but can't seem to find anything satisfactory. I'm wondering if there's some handbook with triaxial test results for different materials? Does anyone have any suggestions where I can find some data?
