[Question #700258]: How to involve adhesionForce in Hertz-Mindlin contact model
New question #700258 on Yade:
I am simulating a triaxial compression test using Hertz-Mindlin model, and I'd like to ask that if it is possible to include adhesion in Hertz-Mindline contact model so that I can simulate bonded material (or cement material).
I read from MindlinPhys, there seems to be an option to set adhesion (named adhesionForce in ).
#I use FrictMat:
MatSand = O.materials.append(FrictMat(young=young,poisson=0.3,frictionAngle=radians(30),density=2650,label='sand'))
#The engines I used are as follow:
#I tried to use the following command to active adhesion:
But I didn't make the adhesion come into effect. Thereby, I'd like to ask that:
(1) How to include adhesion in Hertz-Mindline contact model if it is possible.
(2) In , it explains adhesionForce as "Force of adhesion as predicted by DMT", what is DMT?
(3) Where I can find the source code of Hertz-Mindline contact model in Yade trunk?
