Re: [Question #698592]: When using a FlowEngine, is the confining pressure of the triaxial test an effective stress?


Question #698592 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Robert Caulk proposed the following answer:
I confirm Jérômes instinct. "Effective stress" depends on perspective
(i.e. effective stress on which grain??). Application of an "effective
stress" from an external loading with TriaxialStressController would
require making generalizations about pore-pressure inside the specimen.
Which seems like a futile process for any dynamic flowengine scenario
with non homogenous pore pressures.
