volume of the meniscus in capillary test

Asked by Carrie on 2013-05-22

Hi,

I have successfully run the capillaryPhys example in yade. ( The 10 M_files have been added to that path. )
But I need to know the volume of the meniscus and find out the water content or total volume of the water.
Can you please tell me how to get them?

thank you for reading my question.
looking forward to your reply and help!

Hi
   Do you have an instance of the cylinder triaxial test? Can you give me ?

To pingyang,
     I am new with yade, so I am sorry to tell you I don't have that cylinder triaxial test.

Please refer to capillary physics, then u will get what u want

Hello all,

Can anyone explain on this question in detail? I am having a same situation.

I looked into capillary physics as shown in the line below:
https://yade-dem.org/doc/yade.wrapper.html?highlight=capillary#yade.wrapper.CapillaryPhys

It looks like the volume of meniscus or capillary force are input parameters.
Based on what I understand, both parameters are automatically calculated based on the capillary pressure that I applied.

Am I understanding incorrectly?

Thank you for your time and help!

Hi Seungcheol,

Phys functors give information on the interaction between two interacting bodies. CapillaryPhys "parameters" are thus variables rather than parameters if it makes sense. In any case, they are not "input parameters" and you are thus right, both volume and force are computed according to the state of the interaction and the capillary pressure that you define through the law functor: Law2_ScGeom_CapillaryPhys_Capillarity.

See: https://yade-dem.org/doc/yade.wrapper.html?highlight=law2_scgeom_capillaryphys_capillarity#yade.wrapper.Law2_ScGeom_CapillaryPhys_Capillarity

where it is clearly written.

I hope I am making this clear...

Cheers
