Application ID: 9747
This deep excavation model is inspired by a benchmark exercise specified by a working group of the German Society for Geotechnics. In this model, a 20 m excavation is modeled with ten steps by means of a parametric sweep. The interaction between the soil and the retaining wall is modeled with contact pairs, and struts are activated as the excavation reaches their depths.

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.
