Periodic triaxial test

Asked by Alireza Sadeghi on 2019-02-25

hello all,

1. How can I control strain in the "PeriTriaxController"?
2.Is it possible to add shear on the boundary condition with this engine?
3. another question is that I can not draw diagram of Stress in compaction direction vs strain in compaction direction. what is the problem in your opinion?
my code is:

from yade import utils, plot
from yade import pack, qt
from datetime import datetime

O.periodic=True
O.cell.refSize=(2e-1,2e-1,2e-1)

O.materials.append(CohFrictMat(normalCohesion= 1e20, shearCohesion= 1e20, isCohesive= True, young=6.81e8, density=1377.5, poisson=0.3, frictionAngle= 0.31, fragile=False, label='Coke'))

nums=['t']

mats=['Coke']

coke=(5e-3,1000)

nums=pack.SpherePack()

nums.makeCloud((0,0,0),(2e-1,2e-1,2e-1),rMean=coke[0],rRelFuzz=1e-4,num=coke[1])

O.bodies.append([utils.sphere(c,r,material=mats[0]) for c,r in nums])

sigmaIso=-1e5

O.engines=[
     ForceResetter(),

     InsertionSortCollider([Bo1_Sphere_Aabb()]),
     InteractionLoop(
        [Ig2_Sphere_Sphere_ScGeom()],
        [Ip2_FrictMat_FrictMat_FrictPhys()],
        [Law2_ScGeom_FrictPhys_CundallStrack()]
     ),

     PeriTriaxController(label='triax',
  goal=(sigmaIso,sigmaIso,sigmaIso),stressMask=7,
  dynCell=True,maxStrainRate=(10,10,10),
  maxUnbalanced=.1,relStressTol=1e-3,
  doneHook='compactionFinished()'
     ),

     NewtonIntegrator(damping=0.4),

     PyRunner(command='addPlotData()',iterPeriod=100),

]

O.dt=0.5*PWaveTimeStep()

def addPlotData():
 plot.addData(unbalanced=unbalancedForce(),i=O.iter,
  sxx=triax.stress[0],syy=triax.stress[1],szz=triax.stress[2],
  exx=triax.strain[0],eyy=triax.strain[1],ezz=triax.strain[2])
# print 'normal stress', triax.stress[2]

# print 'normal strain', triax.strain[2]

plot.plots={('ezz'):('szz')}

plot.plot()

def compactionFinished():

 O.cell.trsf=Matrix3.Identity

 triax.goal=(sigmaIso,sigmaIso,-.2)
 triax.stressMask=3

 triax.maxStrainRate=(10,10,10)

 triax.doneHook='triaxFinished()'

 triax.maxUnbalanced=10

def triaxFinished():
 print 'Finished'
 O.pause()

The code does not draw "plot.plots={('ezz'):('szz')}". I was wondering if you could help me to fix this problem. Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Best Regards

Alireza

Hello,

Usually for the sake of organization, we try to limit each thread to one question [3]. Thank you for your future cooperation!

>> 1.How can I control strain in the "PeriTriaxController"?
With [1].

>>2.Is it possible to add shear on the boundary condition with this engine?
According to the example script, you would use O.cell.vellGrad [2]

>> 3. The code does not draw "plot.plots={('ezz'):('szz')}".
It is tough to diagnose the problem without any reports of a symptom :-) Please describe your symptom(s) so that I can try to help you [3]

Cheers,

Robert

Dear Robert,

Thank you very much for your help. I will obey the law (one question with one object).

Thanks for your help. for [1], is there any example for it?

for question number 3, it doesn't have any lines in the diagram. the diagram is empty. without any error. I run the sample which I put in this question, but I could not draw the diagram.

Thank you for your help.

Best Regards

Alireza

Yeah, same folder [1].

>>it doesn't have any lines in the diagram

Looks like you are trying to plot vectors. PeriTriaxController.stress returns a vector [2], you will need to index that vector to obtain the value you want. Same with strain.

def addPlotData():
 plot.addData(unbalanced=unbalancedForce(),i=O.iter,szz=triax.stress[2][2],ezz=triax.strain[2][2])

Hello,

Sorry, I need to correct the second part of my last response, I though PeriTriaxController.stress acted the same way as TriaxStressController.stress, but it does not. In fact, your script should work as it is. I ran your script and it plots szz vs ezz.

Cheers,

Robert

Dear Robert,

Thank you very much for your help.

My script does not work and it can not plot any thing. I don't know how should I fix it. Thank you for your help.

I ran your script with the standard yade installation and it plots a line.
