Effects of soil fabric on behaviors of granular soils: Microscopic modeling

Publication year: 2011 Source: Computers and Geotechnics, Volume 38, Issue 7, November 2011, Pages 861-874 Siam Yimsiri, Kenichi Soga The effects of initial soil fabric on behaviors of granular soils are investigated by using Distinct Element Method (DEM) numerical simulation. Soil specimens are represented by an assembly of non-uniform sized spheres with different initial contact normal distributions. Isotropically consolidated triaxial compression loading and extension unloading in both undrained and drained conditions are simulated for vertically- and horizontally-sheared specimens
