I see.

My current studies are already involved with thermodynamics which is why I
asked you more about that. Physical properties of lunar soil can be modified
by the effect of high temperature fluctuations. But I am not planning to
include directly this feature, only if time allows.

Thanks Janek for explanation! And thanks Bruno for remind me I should set to
True the bool traceEnergy ;) I did it. But I do not understand the results.
You can also reproduce them setting traceEnergy=True in the script I
attached in this thread. Please just see the attached plot. The code of
plasticDissipation() I am sure it is correct. There is sliding as expected
in fact. But what is wrong now?
Thanks for any suggestion.
