Re: [Question #689592]: Calibrating paramters under different confining pressure

Hi Leonard,

like you said, it is difficult to create one set of parameters that will
provide proper results for different conditions.

In my work, I used TriaxialCompressionEngine to perform some triaxial tests. As far as I'm concerned, when I wanted to properly prepare samples for two different confining pressures e.g. 100 kPa and 400 kPa, I had to use different friction angles between the particles (higher one for higher pressure), so the initial porosity was equal for both pressures (higher pressure will better squeeze
the specimen). I used the same approach to reach different initial porosities. 

As far as I know, you can try to change your parameters a little, e.g.:
- increasing micro friction angle will increase only the peak value of the stress-strain curve and the residual value will stay on the same level,
- increasing young modulus will increase the global stiffness of the response.
- changing moments law etaRoll parameter can change the placement of the peak value on the stress-strain curve.
