Re: [Yade-dev] dissipating all energy in a packing
Václav Šmilauer a écrit :
The critical question : is 1e-9 more than what you would get from
Whatever the method you use to damp particle movements I suspect the
system to reach a vanishing value of kinetic energy asymptotically.
Thus, if it the case, you can wait a very long time to obtain values
of kinetic energy as small as you want...
Sorry to be unclear: the kinetic energy doesn't decrease from the point
where it hits some bottom line (around 1e-9 in this case), and
oscillates around this value. I suspect the way Cundall damps motion to
be blamed. Well, I will try and see. Best, Vaclav
Come on, you need to compare this 1e-9 with another value!
Another possible normalisation, provided you have a speed defined
somewhere (like triaxial test at constant strain) : divide by the
kinetic energy of the homogeneous-continuum-like velocity field.
If your configuration is purely static, I have no other idea than
And about Cundall's damping being "the best" (in my previous message),
note that it only applies to confined packings in quasi-static
conditions. As suggested by Feng, non-viscous damping gives unrealistic
motions in some dynamic problems.
