Isotropic Compression with Modified Cam-Clay Material Model

Application ID: 10215

Isotropic compression is a common exercise in soil testing. The modified Cam-Clay model describes the relation between the void ratio and the logarithm of the pressure. In this example, a soil sample is placed inside cylinder 10 cm in diameter and 10 cm in height. Due to the symmetry, the model is solved in 2D axial symmetry. A boundary load produces isotropic compression conditions.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
