FE-Modeling of Shear Resistance Degradation in a Sand Body During Cyclic Shearing Under CNS Condition

Abstract

The behaviour of dry and cohesionless sand body in a cyclic interface shear box test under a constant normal stiffness (CNS) condition is numerically studied. Do this end finite element calculations are carried out using a micro-polar hypoplastic model, where the mean grain diameter of the sand material is used as a characteristic length of the micro… (More)
