Re: [Question #707888]: Why do particles in the concrete cube compression test disperse directly?


Question #707888 on Yade changed:

    Status: Open => Answered

Karol Brzezinski proposed the following answer:
Hi Antonia,

1) Macro behavior is a result of microparameters, particle size, and
shape, constitutive laws, etc. For example, rock may have a stiffness of
70 GPa, while a sand sample has a stiffness of around 150 MPa.
Calibration is the best solution [1].

2) Timestep is overestimated for this model, although I am not sure why.
Please change dtSafety  to 0.1
