Flexible and Smooth Strip Footing on a Stratum of Clay
Application ID: 2203
A common verification problem for geotechnical problems is a shallow stratum layer of clay. In this example a vertical load is applied on the clay strata and the static response and the collapse load are studied. The clay is modeled as an elastic-perfectly plastic material and the Drucker–Prager and Mohr–Coulomb yield conditions under plane strain conditions are compared.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Grille des Spécifications and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
