Flexible and Smooth Strip Footing on Stratum of Clay
Application ID: 2203
A common verification model for geotechnical problems is of a shallow stratum layer of clay.
In this model, a vertical load is applied to the clay strata top surface and the static response and collapse load are studied.
The clay is modeled as an elastic-perfectly plastic material and the Mohr-Coulomb yield condition under plane strain conditions is used. The response is studied using an associated as well as a non-associated flow rule.
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.
