Can create pure 2D bodies in Yade

Asked by enki

I know that PFC can simulate pure 2D objects in simulation, however, can we create pure 2D objects, i.e. 2D circles on xy plane in Yade?

Hello,

AFAIK it is not possible.
Also depending on the definition of "pure". E.g. State.pos is "hardcoded" as Vector3, having 3 coordinates, breaking the purity in its extreme meaning.

Pure 2D shapes can be implemented.

However, for "basic" cases (e.g. using spheres, centers in xy plane, blockedDOFs="zXY", Law2_ScGeom_FrictPhys_CundallStrack, ...), the behavior and results would be identical to the case of "pure" 2D simulation.

Cheers
Jan
