Application ID: 9759
This model shows how to set up a uniaxial compression test on a prestressed soil sample. Due to uniaxial compression and simple initial stress values, it is possible to determine the vertical yield stress analytically. The soil sample is modeled with soil plasticity and the Mohr-Coulomb criterion.
This application was built using the following:Geomechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
