Re: [Question #679566]: Some questions about simulating consolidated undrained triaxial test


Question #679566 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Chareyre proposed the following answer:
This is a purely conceptual problem. In lab you can impose total confining
stress, yes, but the effective confining stress is changing nevertheless.
In DEM you don't simulate the fluid, so which one do you record? Effective
or total?
Thats' the effective obviously, and so it is changing just like in lab.
