Evaulation of soil elastic parameters

Evaulation of soil elastic parameters

Evaulation of soil elastic parameters

Hi all,

we need to develop a granular dynamics simulation of a tillage machine. First of all we performed the test with the tillage machine on a soil with the following triangle: 40% clay, 40% silt and 20% sand. We use the data collected as a reference to reproduce by the simulation. The soil input parameters are: friction angle, Young's modulus and Poisson's coefficient. Which soil tests should I carry out to get these parameters? Is it the triaxial test enough?

Thank you.

RE: Evaulation of soil elastic parameters

I need to develop a dynamical and plastic simulation of a truck. Which tests should I carry out to get the FEM analysis parameters? Is a crash test enough?
Sorry, couldn't help myself. Pun intended.

Please hire a geotech.
