Triaxial Test with Hardening Soil Material Model

Application ID: 70061

In this example, a triaxial test is simulated using the Hardening Soil material model. The test consists of two main stages; an initial isotropic compression, followed by axial compressive/tensile loading. A hyperbolic stress-strain relation is recovered. It is also verified that the asymptotic value of the axial stress is equal to the analytical value of the failure stress.

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