Re: Triax-lateral_stress


during the triaxial test I should maintain the same lateral stress value during the analysis, while the axial stress is increasing. The fact is that from my simulation actually I see from the results that the lateral stress is not kept constant, but it is increasing. How can I fix it? Am I wrong somewhere?
One possible cause : lateral boxes have this maximum velocity. If the axial velocity is too high, lateral boundaries cannot move fast enough to adjust the stress. You need to increase max_vel or decrease strain rate.

Does it fix the problem?
