- n. The property of granular masses of expanding in bulk with change of shape. it is due to the increase of space between the individually rigid particles as they change their relative positions.
“If any one of you knows about any open-source code for such a constitutive model (Advanced Mohr-Coloumb for soil with both dilatancy and hardening behaviors) or any other advise can help me about this, could you please tell me how/where I can find it? tuhinsinha. 25 on Thu, 2009-06-18 15: 26. sasekaran on Thu, 2010-02-11 22: 20.”
“I am experimentally and numerically studying the stress distribution undernath the padfoot roller at the first stage, I need to have a constitutive model for soil with both dilatancy and hardening behaviors.”
“We suggest that this process is the dominant mechanism of deep slab hydration, although it may be locally aided by the enhancement in porosity due to prefailure dilatancy”
