Soil Modeling

Soil Modeling

Soil Modeling

Dear all,

I am a PhD student and I am modeling the behavior of a 3D tyre rolling over a deformable road in Abaqus. I was advised from the Civil Engineering forum to write my topic(question) here since many of you may have faced similar problems with regards of modeling the soil.

I am trying to find some accurate sand,clay, (any type of deformable soil) data in order to run and validate my model.

I would more than grateful (by far more than grateful) if any of you could attach me some reliable soil data(any type of soil) along with the respective criteria that they should be used for.(Drucker-Prager,Mohr-Coulomb,etc)

Thank you very much for your time and for any future reply.

Kindest Regards,

US DOT Fed Highway Administration and Fed Aviation Agency all have many many publications describing engineering properties of soils, no doubt exactly as you require. Search their websites.

you must get smarter than the software you're using.

RE: Soil Modeling

Many thanks for your reply.

RE: Soil Modeling

Strange that they sent you away from their own forum. Do civil engineers only do environmental stuff these days. Soils mechanics was a required course when I was in CE school.
