BE44: Undrained Elastic Soil Layer Subjected to Strip Loading
The example concerns the behavior of the rectangular soil layer subjected to an uniform strip loading of intensity acting on the surface. Base of the soil is rigidly fixed while the sides are laterally constrained. Geometry, load and boundary conditions are depicted in the figure. The soil material is elastic, isotropic and saturated with water. Two soil conditions have been analyzed - drained and undrained. The drained and undrained displacements and stresses obtained by the finite element method are compared with
the analytical solution.This is one example of our Verification Manual. You can find the whole manual in SSD and TEDDY via menue Help > Verification Manual, the input data files in TEDDY via menue Help> examples... > verification.
