[Question #697846]: Target porosity in spherepack.makecloud
New question #697846 on Yade:
Hi, I was trying to do a triaxial test on the sand of porosity 20% and I wasn't able to reach the input porosity. I used the experimental data to determine the particle size distribution and here below I am presenting the data.
Sieve Size(mm) Weight retained on the sieve(grams)
The total weight of the sand is 500 grams.
I tried changing the distribution, other solutions like reducing friction angle method none of those achieved the required porosity. I am always getting a porosity of more than 40% and reduced to 37% by using the friction method.
Can anyone tell me if I entered the psdSize and psdComm array correctly in the below line of code?
