Re: General questions
It is used in that sense, in the code I thougt the initial question was
Sorry if the joke was obscure, I meant this naming was misleading.
One example in SimpleElasticRelationShip l.38 :
Real Va = mat1->poisson;
Real Vb = mat2->poisson;
Real Kn = 2*Ea*Da*Eb*Db/(Ea*Da+Eb*Db);
Real Ks = 2*Ea*Da*Va*Eb*Db*Vb/(Ea*Da*Va+Eb*Db*Va)
Which means :
kna = Ea/Da, knb = Eb/Db
ksa = poisson*kna, ksb = poisson*knb // ks = kn*nu
In short, if E, nu, and sizes are the same, it gives :
Kn = E/D, Ks=nu*Kn.
So, in the default triaxial test, what you put in the variable
"spherePoissonRatio", is used to define ks/kn.
There is nothing wrong in the equations, for me at least, but I think
I'll rename this parameter "alpha" in the TT interface, so we don't have
confusion. I hope it clarifies the previous mail when I wrote this :
"For Poisson, the name is only due to the fact that Poisson's ratio
depends mostly on ks/kn. But there is no constant - not even linear -
relation between the micro and the macro in that case."
It means I named ks/kn "poisson" because it is the only variable (in the
contact law) that can modify nu. There is no proportionality between
ks/kn and nu, however.
I hope it clarifies. Sorry if I type too fast sometimes (I know I do it
a lot). I'm not asking anybody to change this name, I'm saying I could
Václav Šmilauer a écrit :
I never used ν in the sense of kt/kn...
Yeah. We need to change the name. :)
I am not aware of that name being use anywhere in this sense, am I
missing something? (or an internal joke?)
I don't smoke anything, I don't drink, and I have feeling that I have
progressively more and more problems communicating with people over wire
(ok, just with you: velGrad, now the simple shear thing, and this?!). I
just listen to minimalistic music sometimes, but that shouldn't change
the brains so much.
