Re: Starting a new project on rock slope stability


The CohesiveFrictional contact law is very general, it includes normal, shear, bending, and torsion components (bending and torsion are purely elastic for now, it is no big deal to add a threshold for failure). You could start with this law and add missing features, or perhaps derive a new law from this one if you need much more sophistications.
I just looked at CohesiveFrictional law and frankly it looks horrible. Janek sain 70% of that code was garbage and it is still sitting there. If I were a newcomer (which Luc is not, of course) and someone would show me this as constitutive law, I would run away from yade very fast...
